“The Ministry of Truth - Minitrue, in Newspeak - was startlingly different from any other object in sight. It was an enormous pyramidal structure of glittering white concrete, soaring up, terrace after terrace, three hundred meters into the air.

December 28, 2016 – California - Record numbers of salmon are spawning in Putah Creek

May 17, 2017 – Report: Extinction Looming for Most of California’s Salmon and Trout

 

January 20, 2017 - Vietnam’s seafood exports could be left fishing in 2017 - Environmental disasters and slowing global demand have left the industry all at sea.

May 4, 2017 - Increase Demand for Frozen Sea Food Drives Growth - global cold chain market to grow 12.41% during 2017-2021

 

 

The two sets of quotes immediately above show that the folks in charge are not your friends, and are lying to you about basically everything, including fish over the entirety of the globe.

And even the official article I quoted saying there's going to be growth hedges desperately by saying the market's going to "grow at a CAGR of 12.41% 2017 to 2021." 12.41%? Over four years? How am I supposed to believe that crap when Iran's seafood exports just grew 15%, in one year, to the highest levels, ever? Pakistan up 13% for the first eight months of the most recent fiscal year, and up 34% in February, year over year. Norway up 23%, in one year, to the highest levels, ever.

There's a lot of talk about "Fake News" these days, and most people can't fathom they'd need to check the guys writing the seafood articles, but, hey, I'm here for them.

The great news is that it’s June, 2017, and Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime. Since that statement directly refutes our State Religion, which holds that “Poor Mother Gaia is Dying, Crushed by the Virus-Like Burden of Mankind”, I’ve appended multiple recent examples below to support it.

Thats extremely bad news for the people running the "Poor Mother Gaia" confidence game, so there's a lot of really negative spin in the controlled-press reportage below. I’ve italicized it for your convenience.

The headline of the story from Pakistan reads “Seafood exports increase by 12.99pc.”  I have to scratch my head at that 12.99. Doesn’t it round up to 13%? But let’s move on. That 12.99% is for the first 8 months of the current financial year. While February’s growth was 34.1%, year-over-year. So you can see the growth in marine life increasing, rapidly.

The chaff throwing in the article entitled “UK exports record amount of food and drink” is really impressive. “Food and drink”, so broad! If you read the story, you’ll see that’s a cloud of chaff to hide one simple fact: it’s the salmon.

sales of the fish leapt more than 50% by value - to £186.7m - and 13% by volume.” They kept volume to last, of course.

The rise in the value of UK salmon sales is thanks in part to rising global demand for the fish, that has been hard to meet due to widespread lice infestations that have hampered production.”

Would you consider an industry that increased production 13% year-over-year to have “hampered production”? It’s desperate negative spin, wouldn't you agree? 

The official reason for the record “food and drink” exports from the tiny island nation?

FDF credited better promotion of UK goods abroad, and the weaker pound.”

Booming marine life unmentioned. Salmon are booming and burgeoning in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans to levels not seen in our lifetime, and that fact is scrupulously unmentioned, here.

But even a steadfast, duplicitous controlled press - impressive as that is on some levels - is not going to change the facts of the situation, and I think the charade is going to collapse quickly enough, going forward.

In the meantime, I invite you to review the data below and use your personal discernment in the matter:

 

 

November 24, 2015 - Record-setting Chinook salmon season drawing to a close

The federal government says fall Chinook salmon are returning to the Hanford Reach section of the river in record-setting numbers.

COLUMBIA RIVER — Some 953,706 fall Chinook passed Bonneville Dam as of Nov. 12, the most fall Chinook passing the dam since it was built 77 years ago. The previous record was set in 2013 when 953,222 fish passed the dam.

Upriver the number of fall Chinook spawning at Hanford Reach is also breaking records and passage of fall Chinook into the Snake River is the second best year since the four lower Snake River dams were built in the 1970s.

 

June 06, 2016 - Iran - Seafood Exports Rise 15%

Some $350 million worth of seafood were exported in the last Iranian year (March 2015-16), registering a 15% rise compared to a year before, the head of Iran’s Fisheries Organization said. “Of the 82,000 tons of seafood exported last year, only 1,000 tons headed to Russia. This is while the Russian market has the capacity to absorb some 200,000 tons and our northern provinces must take advantage of this opportunity,” Hassan Salehi was also quoted as saying by IRNA. Salehi noted that per capita fish consumption in Iran amounts to 10 kilograms, which is way below the global average of 20 kilograms. Iran produced a record high of more than 1 million tons of seafood last year.

 

December 28, 2016 – California - Record numbers of salmon are spawning in Putah Creek

 

January 20, 2017 - Vietnam’s seafood exports could be left fishing in 2017

Environmental disasters and slowing global demand have left the industry all at sea.

Slowing demand in major markets could restrict Vietnam’s seafood exports in 2017, despite the industry seeing a breathtaking result in 2016.

Data from the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP) showed that the country collected $7 billion from seafood exports in 2016, rising 7.4 percent from the year before.

 

February 11, 2017 - Almost 500,000 coho forecast to Columbia River in 2017

 

April 7, 2017 – Pakistan - Seafood exports increase by 12.99pc

Seafood exports from the country during first eight months of current financial year increased by 12.99pc as compared the exports of the corresponding period of last year.

On a month-on-month basis, seafood exports from the country in the month of February 2017 grew by 34.1 pc in comparison to the same month of last year.

 

April 10, 2017 - 2016 was a record year for Norwegian seafood exports

Norwegian seafood exports reached a milestone in 2016. Sales were up 23% from 2015.

 

April 26, 2017 - Ireland - Asia Pacific is one of the prominent regions globally in the seafood market for both export as well as import. It is projected that by 2030, the Asia Pacific region will account for approximately 70% of the global demand for fish and seafood products. Hence, to meet this increasing demand of seafood, production of seafood globally is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years.

 

May 4, 2017 - Global Cold Chain Market 2017-2021: Increase Demand for Frozen Sea Food and Sea Food Products Drives Growth - The global cold chain market to grow at a CAGR of 12.41% during the period 2017-2021.

 

May 17, 2017 – Report: Extinction Looming for Most of California’s Salmon and Trout

 

May 31, 2017 – UK exports record amount of food and drink

Surging sales of salmon helped the UK to export a record amount of food and drink in the first quarter of 2017, the Food and Drink Federation has said.

The industry group said sales of the fish leapt more than 50% by value - to £186.7m - and 13% by volume. 

The rise in the value of UK salmon sales is thanks in part to rising global demand for the fish, that has been hard to meet due to widespread lice infestations that have hampered production. 

That has led to higher prices for salmon across the board.

 British food and drink exports as a whole grew by 8.3% year-on-year to £4.9bn - the largest first quarter figure on record.

FDF credited better promotion of UK goods abroad, and the weaker pound.

 THE BREAKING OF THE GREAT ARTIFICIAL DROUGHT

Updated from the beginning of the thread on June 13, 2013, through page 18, to September 17, 2014

 

 

“The Ministry of Truth - Minitrue, in Newspeak - was startlingly different from any other object in sight. It was an enormous pyramidal structure of glittering white concrete, soaring up, terrace after terrace, three hundred meters into the air. From where Winston stood it was just possible to read, picked out on its white face in elegant lettering, the three slogans of the Party:

WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.”

George Orwell, from "1984"

 

 

January 4, 2013 - There Is No Link Between Rising Temperatures And Increased Rainfall

September, 2013 - NASA Study Projects Warming-Driven Changes in Global Rainfall

September, 2013 - Climate change might be causing abundant rainfall

 

 

February 7, 2013 - 2013 had the fewest U.S. forest fires since 1984

March, 2014 - Abundant rainfall could mean more intense grass fire season

 

 

 

As you can see from the two sets of quotes immediately above, the folks in charge are lying to you about basically everything, including temperature, rainfall and forest fires.

It’s June, 2017, and the great artificial drought has been broken by the slow, steady, widespread and ever-increasing distribution of simple, inexpensive Orgonite devices in the vicinity of the weather warfare infrastructure that many still mistakenly presume only carries cell phone traffic and weather radar data.

That’s really bad news for the folks who have built, expand and maintain build and the global, Death energy-based weather control and modification system. A great many of the nodes on their "network" are "UNESCO World Heritage Sites" - the most important, oldest nodes.  

Rainfall has been slowly, steadily and deliberately mitigated, back into history, via an intentional, malefic effort driven by Death energy - first via human sacrifices in key places on the Earth’s energy grid, and later augmented by the "modern technologies" we’ve been steadily assured all have no deleterious effects whatsoever. Telegraph, telephone, radio, radar, television and, at the last, cell phone technology.

The folks in charge have worshipped Storm gods of various names all the way back, and one of them was the Canaanite Ba'al. I've previously advanced the thesis that stone Ba'al pillars were the first death-tech, collecting and transmitting the Death Energy of sacrifices performed at their bases. Fast-forward to today, and you can note the worldwide network of antennaed and steepled structures festooning the World Grid. They are, all of them, simply newer- and newer-school Ba'al pillars. Or so I have subjectively concluded.

Baal was also known as 'Lord of the Air'. It's why the famous car and Southern California suburb are called 'Bel Air' (from B'el Air, Ba'al Air). It's why you have shoes called 'Air', and why the big cell phone company's advertising campaign was 'Rule the Air'...all hail, Ba'al, our dark master.

Ba'al Pillers to cell towers, Lord of the Air to 'Rule the Air' - they imagined the rubes would never figure it out. Well, a certain small subset of us have, and, unfortunately for our ill-intended, erstwhile masters, we've also figured out that simple orgonite flips the polarity of these structures, and they become Positive Orgone Radiation generators and transmitters.

It was Don Croft who taught me that Las Vegas was green and verdant when the Spaniards arrived. 1829: “Armijo dispatched a young Mexican scout named Raphael Rivera to search for an oasis; he returned thirteen days later with news of a verdant spring covered with the rolling green fields the Spanish call  las vegas . Meadows there were, and plenty of water too; the traders refreshed themselves and reached Los Angeles less than three weeks later.”

Here’s wiki’s take:

It was called Las Vegas by the Spanish. The name means The Meadows in the Spanish language. It had a lot of these in 1854. The city is known for its dry weather, as is the rest of southern Nevada. It is surrounded by deserts.”

Can you see how they say “known for its dry weather” and have erased “oasis”?

Here’s a different wiki entry:

In the 1800s, areas of the Las Vegas Valley contained artesian wells that supported extensive green areas or meadows (vegas in Spanish), hence the name Las Vegas.

Ah, the greenery was artificial, I see! More deliberate obfuscation.

This is from a book on blackjack: “years ago, Las Vegas was just another uninhabitable tract of land. That was until late in the 1820s when Spaniards located a well, thus creating an oasis.”

For those unaware, artesian wells are artificial, they're drilled. While a verdant spring or an oasis are natural. Yes, even more deliberate spin, lies and obfuscation to cover the desertification agenda that these barely-closeted Death worshippers have been implementing all the way back to Babylon, and before.

The negative light in which rain, the giver of life is portrayed in the media goes back deep into the past, as well. "Rain, rain, go away." It’s an incantation, a Black magic spell.

And it’s not just drought creation and desertification these people are into, of course. It’s Death in all its manifestations – killing the animals, the plants, the humans – generating as much Death energy as possible for the dark gods they worship.

I know this is really hard for many or most to grasp, or deal with, but it’s like coming to terms with a deadbeat friend who’s been crashing on your couch for too long. It’s time to come to terms with this situation, and get our house in order.

The great news is that the tide has turned, the game is over for these people:

"April 28, 2016 - Record-breaking rain in April for Las Vegas, and it's not done yet"

All the Las Vegas rainfall records, below, aren’t strange, and anomalous, they’re a return to the way things always were.

And that’s true about everywhere else, too.

I don’t know how long it’s going to take for wider humanity to awaken from the carefully crafted spell they’ve been placed under, but I’m quite awake, and if you’ve reached this Obscure Internet Forum, I’m guessing that, so are you, too.

Everyone’s waking up, together. 

If you haven't already done so, please consider distributing simple, inexpensive Orgonite devices where you live and work, today, or sponsor a gifter, perhaps even through a vehicle such as this forum.

 

 

 

 

October 27, 2012 - After decades of decline, Texas quail rebounding this year

Over the past 20 years or so, Texas' quail population has declined by as much as 70 percent.

Rains this past winter and spring jump-started vegetation growth, and that burst of grasses and other plants provided food and cover for adult quail, triggering a strong nesting effort, he said. Quail chicks found plenty of insects to eat. August and September rains greatly aided survival of chicks and encouraged late nesting.

"I've seen a marked and impressive increase in quail numbers," Ledbetter said. "Where I was seeing coveys with just six or eight birds in them last year, I've counted 18-22 birds." The best quail numbers were in South Texas. "But I've seen more quail this year in the Hill Country - Edwards Plateau - than I have in years," Ledbetter said.

 

January 4, 2013 - There Is No Link Between Rising Temperatures And Increased Rainfall

"In viewing the three portions of the above figure, it can readily be seen that from approximately 1939-2009, there were no significant trends in any of the three precipitation parameters over that seven-decade interval, when the bulk of the global warming most recently experienced by the Earth has been claimed by climate alarmists to have been unprecedented with respect to the past millennium or two. In addition, they note that the most intense events (those over the 90th, 95th and 99th percentiles) have small trends over the full period analyzed, which are rarely significant even on a local scale. And these sets of observations cast a huge amount of doubt upon climate-alarmist predictions of greater precipitation – including more intense precipitation extremes – occurring in tandem with rising temperatures."

 

January 4, 2014 - Latest storm likely to make the 2010s the snowiest decade in the east in the NOAA record

It was quite a storm. I have never seen Logan Airport report heavy snow with an air temperature of 1F (not wind chill) before. The ended up with 15.1 inches. Boxford had 23.8 inches.

Even as more cold and snow invades the central, near the east coast, the post storm blues have set in with the inevitability of an inside runner following rapidly on its heels. But snow loving friends, we have lived through quite a decade and the millennium so far has been a boon to snow lovers despite the continuing claims that snows are becoming rare and hurting winter sports as erroneously reported last week in Boston Magazine.

We here are using NOAA’s own NESIS scale – which we used to call the Kocin/Uccellini storms.

The Northeast Snowfall Impact Scale (NESIS) Overview

While the Fujita and Saffir-Simpson Scales characterize tornadoes and hurricanes respectively, there is no widely used scale to classify snowstorms. The Northeast Snowfall Impact Scale (NESIS) developed by Paul Kocin and Louis Uccellini of the National Weather Service (Kocin and Uccellini, 2004) characterizes and ranks high-impact Northeast snowstorms. These storms have large areas of 10 inch snowfall accumulations and greater. NESIS has five categories: Extreme, Crippling, Major, Significant, and Notable. The index differs from other meteorological indices in that it uses population information in addition to meteorological measurements. Thus NESIS gives an indication of a storm’s societal impacts. This scale was developed because of the impact Northeast snowstorms can have on the rest of the country in terms of transportation and economic impact.

This week’s storm was at least as impactful and covered a wide stretch back to the Midwest. If it joins the NESIS list, it will be storm 49 and make the 2010s the snowiest decade for the east coast in the record, surpassing the 1960s.

 

February 7, 2013 - Least extreme U.S. weather year ever?

2013 shatters the record for fewest U.S. tornadoes — 15% lower than previous record — 2013 also had the fewest U.S. forest fires since 1984

‘Whether you’re talking about tornadoes, wildfires, extreme heat or hurricanes, the good news is that weather-related disasters in the US are all way down this year compared to recent years and, in some cases, down to historically low levels.’

Extreme Heat: The number of 100 degree days may ‘turn out to be the lowest in about 100 years of records’

Hurricanes: ‘We are currently in the longest period (8 years) since the Civil War Era without a major hurricane strike in the US (i.e., category 3, 4 or 5)’ ( last major hurricane to strike the US was Hurricane Wilma in 2005)

The latest data show both tornadoes and now wildfires in dramatic decline.

 

February 27, 2013 - What’s behind Lake Tahoe’s ‘Amazing’ Gain in Clarity

The crystal blue water of Lake Tahoe is getting clearer. Clarity in the alpine lake has improved for two years in a row.

 

March 3, 2013 - Lake Tahoe Water Clarity Improving

A recent trend in improved water clarity at Lake Tahoe has scientists and regional agency planners confident that 15 years of environmental measures are beginning to bear fruit.

Last year's annual average clarity depth at the lake was recorded at 75.3 feet -- more than an 11-foot improvement from the all-time worst recorded in 1997, according to data from the UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center.

 

April, 2013 – In Britain, weeks of freezing weather are set to be followed by a wet and cool summer, forecasters warned yesterday

 

April, 2013 - Forecast is for May is for near-normal to cooler than normal temperatures. Wet March and April have wiped out the drought in Georgia!

 

May 15, 2013 - The long range summer forecast for Ireland would suggest that we are in for another year of cooler and wetter than normal conditions

 

May 26, 2013 - German meteorologists say that the start of 2013 is now the coldest in 208 years – and now German media has quoted Russian scientist Dr Habibullo Abdussamatov from the St. Petersburg Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory [saying this] is proof as he said earlier that we are heading for a “Mini Ice Age.” Talking to German media, the scientist who first made his prediction in 2005 said that after studying sunspots and their relationship with climate change on Earth, we are now on an ‘unavoidable advance towards a deep temperature drop.’”

Faith in Global Warming is collapsing in formerly staunch Europe following increasingly severe winters which have now started continuing into spring. 

“Here in Britain, where we had our fifth freezing winter in a row, the Central England Temperature record – according to an expert analysis on the US science blog Watts Up With That – shows that in this century, average winter temperatures have dropped by 1.45C, more than twice as much as their rise between 1850 and 1999, and twice as much as the entire net rise in global temperatures recorded in the 20th century.”

Last week it was reported that 3,318 places in the USA had recorded their lowest temperatures for this time of year since records began. Similar record cold was experienced by places in every province of Canada. So cold has the Russian winter been that Moscow had its deepest snowfall in 134 years of observations.

 

June, 2013 - Corn farmers are feeling the impact of a cool, wet spring but are still expected to bring in a record crop this year

(A record crop was the result - yet the farmers are said to "feel the impact" - blatant negative spin inserted prior to the good news - ed)

 

June, 2013 – Rice output in India is set to climb to a record as early arrival of monsoon rains over the biggest growing regions spurs planting

Showers have been 23 percent more than a 50-year average since June 1, with Andhra Pradesh getting at least 70 percent more rains, bureau data showed. Andhra Pradesh and West Bengal are the nation’s top growers, representing about 29 percent of the crop."

(Headline deliberately misleads, says it's "early arrival" to avoid saying "plentiful rain" - ed)

 

July, 2013 - Canada - Larry Robinson...(has) been giving horse-drawn wagon rides through the "desert" for nearly two decades under company name Spirit Sands Wagon Outfitters. (His tours include) a stop at the Devil's Punch Bowl, a 45-metre depression of sand where blue-green water pools.

This year alone has seen a surge in vegetative cover, thanks to rain seemingly every second or third day in the Spirit Sands, as the dunes are called.

The Manitoba government has not ruled out using herbicides to stop vegetation from covering the sandhills at Spruce Hills Provincial Park, said Conservation Minister Gord Mackintosh.

Other options to preserve the sandhills include controlled burns and plowing up the vegetation to bring back exposed sand. Part of the justification is that Manitoba will lose unique species such as skinks, our only native lizard, that rely on areas of open sand.

"The area 'looked like the Sahara' two decades ago."

 

July 9, 2013 - Rising Carbon Dioxide Levels Cause Desert Greening, Satellite Observations Reveal

"According to new research reported in the Geophysical Research Letters, increased levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) over the past three decades have caused an 11 percent increase in green foliage over the globe’s arid regions through a process called CO2 fertilization."

(The satellite observations simply reveal greening - the leap to it being caused by rising CO2 levels is their own. A careful misdirection -ed)

 

July 13, 2013 – (North Texas) Summer weather shocker: Cool and rainy

(The words "mystery", "baffled" and "puzzled" are memes, used, among numerous similar variants, whenever anyone in the wholly-controlled-and-coopted Political, Academic, Scientific and Media establishments wants to lie about, well, basically anything. One of those variants is "shocked". -ed)

January 11, 2014 - Twenty-three Americans died from lightning in 2013, the fewest since records began in 1940.

The year 2013 set a record for the fewest lightning deaths in a year in the USA. There were 23 fatalities  directly attributed to lightning, according to data from the National Weather Service. The previous record low was in 2011, which had 26 deaths. Accurate lightning death records go back 73 years to 1940.

Over the past 30 years, about 52 people on average die each year from lightning strikes. Going way back, in the 1940s, hundreds of people were killed each year by lightning; in 1943 alone, 432 people died. "While we don't like to see any lightning deaths, the continuing reduction in yearly fatalities is encouraging,"  Jensenius said.

Why the huge drop in deaths, especially compared with decades ago, even though the population is more than twice what it was then?  "Comparisons show that the decrease in lightning risk to people coincides with a shift in population from rural to urban regions," wrote meteorologist Ronald Holle in an article in the Journal of Applied Meteorology.

"There were many, many more small farmers who were out working in fields,"  Jensenius said, which resulted in many more chances to be struck by lightning.

Other reasons for the drop in lightning-related fatalities over the years:

  • All phones were corded, and there were quite a few deaths due to people speaking on the phone.
  • Better lightning protection, suppression and grounding in electrical and phone lines.
  • More concern and awareness of lightning safety, due in part to advances in media communication.
  • Medical advances in treating lightning strike victims.

Last year  was also a relatively quiet year in the USA for severe thunderstorms, which  produce large hail, tornadoes or very strong winds. Could this have been a factor in the record low number of lightning deaths?

"I have never tried to correlate the two; however, I doubt that there'd be much of a correlation," Jensenius said. "Very few lightning deaths seem to occur during 'severe' weather.  As for non-severe thunderstorms, overall, the number of thunderstorms doesn't vary much from year to year across the United States, so I don't think there's much of a correlation there either."

June 20, 2014 – Excellent Conditions for 2014 Colorado Fly Fishing and Hunting Seasons

With snow still melting from the peaks and the weather slowly warming, summer is slowly arriving this year in the Colorado high country. The conditions are already green and lush, and the health of our grazing and water in the Flat Tops is the best we have seen in years.

Guided Fly Fishing trips in Colorado Wilderness areas We expect to see a very exciting fishing season with these conditions unfolding. Our timberline lakes will be full, and our headwaters streams will continue to fill with clear, cold water for our native trout.

With all of the moisture on the ground and in the waterways, insect life should also provide healthy nourishment for trout throughout the summer. Aquatic insects like caddis, mayflies and stoneflies all rely on cold, oxygenated water. This should result in prolific hatches and some excellent dry fly fishing throughout the summer months!

Bull Elk Our big game herds are certainly benefiting from the lush vegetation as well. We are already seeing a banner year for antler growth in bull elk and mule deer bucks. Last year at this time, grass around our base camp was already beginning to brown. This year, the grass in camp is more than eight inches tall. With the peaks still white and plenty of snow yet to melt, elk cows and calves will have excellent grazing conditions. Our herds should go into this fall in great shape.

Of course, all of this moisture is also leading to very healthy wildflowers. Our horseback riding guests will enjoy and excellent wildflower season this year. The hills are already coming alive with flowers. With plenty of snow still melting off the peaks, the flowers should continue to bloom well into the summer.

July 8, 2014 - Weather underpins hopes for huge US corn crop 

(headline uses the neutral 'weather' to carefully avoid saying "cool, rainy" - ed)

Weather forecasts maintained hope for US corn production prospects as crops entered the key pollination period in historically strong condition, with soybeans and spring wheat seen thriving too.

An outlook for temperatures to remain below average throughout the Midwest over the next 10 days "sets the stage for excellent pollination conditions", said Paul Georgy, president of Chicago broker Allendale.

"If the forecast comes true it would make it the fourth coolest pollination period since 1980.

"This would put this year in the category with 2004 and 2009 when record yields were set in corn."

US farmers achieved a corn yield of 160.3 bushels per acre in 2004, beating by a margin the previous record of 142.2 bushels per acre set the previous year, while in 2009 setting the current all-time high of 164.7 bushels per acre.

Cool conditions are beneficial to pollination, with heat and dryness hampering the process, as seen in 2012, when the yield fell to 123.4 bushels per acre, the lowest since 1995.

'Bumper yield prospects'

At RJ O' Brien, Richard Feltes also highlighted that the two-week outlook for Midwest temperatures was "not only cooler than last week's models, but normal-to-below average through the peak of corn pollination in mid-July".

He added: "US farmers, grown accustomed to sub-160 bushels per acre US corn yields in eight of the last 10 years, are unexpectedly faced with the prospect of a 170 bushels-per- acre 2014 US corn yield."

The comments followed the release of data overnight showing that as of Sunday 15% of corn was silking, part of the pollination process, at a time when 75% of the crop was in "good" or "excellent" condition.

While unchanged on the week, that rating was the second best of the past 20 years for the time of year, beaten only by the 1999 figure.

'High humidity was beneficial'

The increase reflected largely an improvement in southern growing states, such as Texas, where USDA scouts reports that "corn experienced rapid growth as a result of recent rainfall", with 66% rated good or excellent, up 2 points week on week.

In Kansas, where "cooler temperatures prevailed and rain fell" last week in southern parts of the state last week, the proportion of corn rated good or excellent increased by 3 points to 58%.

'Spring wheat is flourishing'

Indeed, the proportion of Iowa soybeans rated good or excellent fell too, by 2 points to 73%, although this was, again, insufficient to offset improvements in other states, such as Kansas, Kentucky and Nebraska.

The rating of the national crop, steady at 72% good or excellent, is the best in 20 years for the time of year.

For spring wheat, the proportion seen as in good or excellent condition held at 70%, including 83% of the crop in North Dakota, the top growing state.

"Northern spring wheat is flourishing in a cool, rainy summer," said Gail Martell at Martell Crop Projections.

August 5, 2014 - Surprising facts about climate change in Portugal: Why the climate catastrophe is not happening

As Portugal came out of its second unusually wet winter in a row, some people already fear these could be the first signs of global climate change. Can the seemingly endless rainy period be blamed on ourselves because we are driving our cars to work, heating and air-conditioning our homes, and flying on holidays or on business to Brazil? Undoubtedly the atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration has been steadily increasing over the past 150 years. In its latest report released last September the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warned of dire consequences should CO2-emissions not be drastically curtailed in the near future.

Among the contributors to the IPCC report were also two Portuguese academics, Dr Pedro Viterbo, Director at the Portuguese Instituto de Meteorologia, and Professor Filipe Duarte Santos of the Lisbon University’s Faculty of Sciences, both serving as review editors for the IPCC. In conjunction with the report’s launch Santos warned that Portugal would be among the European countries most vulnerable to climate change. He suggested that the country in the future will suffer from more extreme weather events like heat-waves and droughts, which in turn will lead to more forest fires and reduced agricultural output. Santos prognosis sees an overall drop in rainfall but with the threat of short bursts of torrential rains that will raise the risk of flooding. Moreover, the Lisbon-based professor expects sea level to rise by more than half a metre before the end of this century, which would put two thirds of Portugal’s coastline at risk for a loss of terrain.

But is it really so? Checking the facts

Are these scary IPCC future scenarios really justified? This is an important question, especially as the European Union has decided to spend at least 20 percent of its entire 2014-2020 European Union budget on climate-related projects and policies – money that is already lacking in other fields. It is clear that the global temperature has risen by nearly one degree since 1850. A similar amount of warming has occurred also in Portugal, as evidenced by historic temperature measurements and geological investigations in the Tejo delta area.

What is interesting, however, is that there has been no warming in Portugal over the last 19 years. This corresponds with the global situation, which has not warmed in the past 16 years, a situation that all of the IPCC’s highly praised climate models failed to foresee. Scientists have been taken by surprise and are now nervously discussing what might have gone wrong in their models. A first explanation emerging is that important 60-year natural ocean cycles apparently had been overlooked. Historical temperature data recorded by weather stations in Lisbon and Coimbra during the last 140 years confirm these stunning cycles. Hardly known today is the fact that around 1950 temperatures in Portugal were as warm over a ten-year period as they are today. And 60 years before that, during the late 19th century, another warm peak had occurred in Portugal, though temperatures were not quite as high as modern levels. Strangely many high temperatures recorded at many places around the world during the 1940s and 1950s have been “corrected” downwards recently by official climate agencies such as NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS). Whether these data alterations are justified is today the subject of heated debate among some climate scientists.

How stable was the climate before CO2 levels rose?

To better understand the context of global warming since the industrial period started in 1850, it is also important to study pre-industrial temperature development when atmospheric CO2 concentrations were low and fairly stable at about 280 ppm. Obviously any change in climate during those pre-industrial times would essentially have to be owing to natural factors. Geological studies from all over the world have documented the occurrence of significant climate fluctuations during the last 10,000 years. Warm phases and cold phases alternated about every thousand years, often in sync with changes in solar activity. For example 1000 years ago, during the Islamic Period in Portugal, average global temperatures were at or above the present-day level. This period is referred to as the Medieval Warm Period and coincides with a phase of high solar activity.

A research team led by Fatima Abrantes from the Laboratório Nacional de Energia e Geologia (LNEG) investigated this period and examined a sediment core they had drilled out of the Tagus delta. In their report published in 2005 in the Quaternary Science Reviews journal, the scientists document temperatures that were on average more than half a degree warmer than today for the Lisbon area. The water discharge of the Tagus during this time was less.

A few years later Fatima Abrantes and her team expanded their studies to the Porto area. Not surprisingly the data confirmed the existence of the Medieval Warm Period also at this location. In their study the researchers recorded persistently elevated temperatures between AD 960-1300 and documented climatic conditions for northern Portugal that were at times more than one degree warmer than today. Studies in Spain show similar results.

The warm medieval climate allowed the Vikings to establish settlements in Greenland. The King of Norway-Denmark at the time reportedly sent a number of white falcons from Greenland as a gift to the King of Portugal and received the gift of a cargo of wine in return. The Medieval Warm Period is one of the greatest mysteries in climate science. How could it have been so warm when CO2 in the atmosphere was so low? Climate models still cannot reproduce this warm phase or other warm phases that had occurred earlier. International scientists met in Lisbon in September 2010 to discuss this dilemma, yet the problem remains unresolved to this day.

An inconvenient truth: climate has been always changing

On a global scale cold phases prevailed before and after the Medieval Warm Period. The influx of Germanic tribes to the Iberian Peninsula at the beginning of the 5th century was triggered by the so-called Dark Ages Cold Period. A decrease in agricultural yields in the north contributed to the European migration. Living conditions were equally difficult in central and northern Europe during the Little Ice Age of 1350-1850 AD. Harvests failed regularly and disease spread. Temperatures in Portugal also fell, as shown by Fatima Abrantes and her team show. During some of these winters heavy snowfall was recorded in Lisbon, such as in 1665, 1744 and 1886. Solar activity during the Little Ice Age was unusually low and might have been the main cause of this globally cool period.

Researchers at the University of Coimbra support the idea that solar activity is one of the key climate control mechanisms on timescales of decades and centuries. In cooperation with a Danish colleague from the Danish Meteorological Institute, Anna Morozova and Maria Alexandra Pais analysed temperature variations in Portugal over the last 140 years and found that solar activity changes had a significant impact on climate, especially during the winter months.

Also little known is the fact that temperatures of 7000 to 5000 years ago were globally one or even two degrees warmer than those of today. This is a time referred to as the Holocene Climate Optimum. In collaboration with the Geological Survey of Spain, a scientific team of the LNEG led by Ana Alberto investigated the temperature changes of this natural warm phase using a sediment core extracted from the Atlantic sea floor about 300 km west of Portugal. The researchers confirmed the existence of this high temperature phase, which had been preceded and was followed by colder periods.

Theoretical climate models come under scrutiny

The unexpectedly strong climate variability of the pre-industrial past indicates that the current climate models used by the IPCC underestimate the significance of natural climate drivers and thus greatly overstate the climate potency of CO2. If this is so, then the scary temperature warnings previously issued by the IPCC are unlikely to come true. Consequently it is not surprising that recently there has been a flurry of publications proposing that the warming effect of CO2 in the climate model equations should be reduced. According to the IPCC the so-called climate sensitivity – the warming that is expected to result from a doubling of atmospheric CO2 – is thought to be between 2°C and 4.5°C, with a best estimate of 3°C. However, a recent study by the Norwegian Research Council has drastically lowered these estimates and assumes only a value of 1.9°C.

In the meantime other scientists and organisations have joined in calling for a downward correction, including the Austrian Central Institution for Meteorology and Geodynamics. The government of the Netherlands has urged the IPCC to include natural climate change processes more systematically and realistically in their models. In reality CO2 climate sensitivity values might actually be as low as 1.5°C or even 1.0°C once solar activity effects are fully factored in. Now that the IPCC future warming scenarios appear to be largely exaggerated, a multitude of other climate-related prognoses are looking more and more to be widely off the mark, e.g. those related to sea level rise, droughts, heat waves and storms.

 

Iberian winter rain in sync with an Atlantic oceanic cycle

In 2009 researchers of the Pyrenean Institute of Ecology (CSIC) publicly warned that rainfall over the Iberian Peninsula would decrease over the coming decades due to rising greenhouse gas emissions. The basis for their claim was an analysis of precipitation data from Spain over the past 60 years which seemed to indicate a decline in winter precipitation.

Only five years later, after several unusually wet Iberian winters, this prediction has begun to fail spectacularly. In particular the winters 2009/2010, 2012/2013 and 2013/2014 have turned out to be extremely rainy. What did CSIC scientists overlook? In 2011 the CSIC researchers found themselves what it was. They had obviously neglected an important 60-year oceanic cycle, the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) which had just entered its negative phase in 2009. The North Atlantic Oscillation is driven by the atmospheric pressure difference between the Icelandic low and the Azores high. It has been long known that winter rain in Portugal and Spain intensifies when this pressure difference is low, also refered to as a “negative NAO”. The NAO cycle began falling around 1990 and according to the 60-year cycle it is expected to remain at low levels for at least another decade thus bringing abundant rain to the Iberian Peninsula over the majority of the coming winters.

Obviously it is necessary to study climatic data series that are significantly longer than the 60-year ocean cycles in order to identify longer-term trends. This is exactly what a Spanish-Portuguese team led by María Cruz Gallego did in a study appearing in the Journal of Geophysical Research in 2011. The researchers studied Iberian rains over a 100-year period and found the opposite of what was found by their CSIC colleagues: the total number of rainy days and that of light rainfall was generally increasing. In 2013 a study led by Dario Camuffo involving researchers from the University of Lisbon and the University of Évora further corroborated this result. The team analysed precipitation data taken from the entire Western Mediterranean covering the last 300 years and found no specific trends over the whole period despite a warming of more than 1°C. It may not come as a surprise that in their data Camuffo and his colleagues found evidence of a 60-year Atlantic oceanic cycle influencing rainfall activity in the study region.

Over longer timescales of hundreds of years, Iberian rainfall was also affected by solar activity changes, as other studies show. Even the NAO itself is now assumed not to be oscillating fully independently, but is partly controlled by the varying energy output of the sun. Therefore the main rain drivers in Portugal and Spain are an Atlantic oceanic cycle and changes in solar activity.

 What role could CO2 play in this development? Has it possibly led to an increase in more extreme rain events? A study by the Institute for Environment and Sustainability by the European Commission investigated an increase in insured losses associated with river flooding occurring in Spain between 1971 and 2008. After adjusting the data for socioeconomic factors, the researchers found that there had been no significant trend in the frequency or intensity of river flooding in Spain. Societal influences remain the prime factors driving insured and economic losses from natural disasters related to flooding.

No increase in droughts in Portugal over the past 70 years

IPCC-affiliated scientists have proposed that droughts in Portugal could become more frequent and intense in the future. However there are two concerns with this model. Firstly, this assumption is based on warming scenarios that are unlikely to materialise in reality because of an overestimated CO2 climate sensitivity. Secondly, calibration with historical drought statistics does not support the idea. A team from the Instituto Superior de Agronomia of the Universidade Técnica de Lisboa led by D.S. Martins studied the drought history of Portugal for the past 70 years and concluded that there is no linear trend indicating more drought events despite a warming of more than half a degree. Apparently there is no direct link between average temperature and drought frequency. In fact it seems that droughts were just as abundant during the pre-industrial past as they are today. A recent study by the Universidad de Extremadura analysed Iberian drought history during Muslim rule and identified three severe droughts: AD 748–754, AD 812–823 and AD 867–879.

The climate apocalypse is a false alarm

It is becoming ever clearer that the climate apocalypse so vividly promoted by some overly active scientists and organisations is not backed up very convincingly by scientific data. Theoretical models have failed spectacularly to reproduce the climate of the past. It turns out that climate has always been prone to natural variability, a fact that has been neglected for too long.

Meanwhile the public seem to have understood that the climate sciences have overplayed their hand. The people have had enough of dramatized reports predicting an imminent climate apocalypse just around the corner. According to a Eurobarometer poll conducted in July 2013, a mere 4% of the European population now cites the alleged climate catastrophe as their most pressing concern. Moreover, the number is zero percent in seven European countries, including Portugal.

August 26, 2014 - "Just to update with the last report back in June. This summer has remained spectacular here. Temperatures were in the 90's for most of July. Typically it's a hundred degrees or higher. More rain than usual for June, July and August. August? I can't say enough about this month. It's been raining like crazy. I've watered my lawn twice. Would have only been once, had I known that it was going to rain that same night. As I've said before, I work outside every day. And I can't remember a summer like this, since? I really don't remember a summer like this.

We didn't get very good snow pack in our mountains last winter. So it's going to be interesting how this winter is going to turn out. The mountains are visibly greener than normal. I didn't say green. They're usually very brown and dried out looking, for this time of year. Definitely an improvement.

August 26, 2014 - Rainstorm in the desert delays opening of 'Burning Man' festival.

The gates are open! Tens of thousands of stranded 'burners' flood into Burning Man site after festival is reopened following rare storm

Tens of thousands of so-called 'burners' were flooding through the gates of Burning Man this morning after the event was reopened following a rain storm that left Nevada's Black Rock Desert looking more like a swamp on the festival's opening day.

Vehicles were allowed into the event's entrance on Highway 34 northeast of Gerlach from 6 a.m. Tuesday, organizers tweeted just after 1 a.m. Festival goers, or 'burners,' responded to the good news with excited tweets such as 'time to get back on the road,' and 'all roads lead to #burningman.' Yesterday, incredible pictures taken from the air showed the astonishing number of people stranded in the desert after rare heavy rains prevented them entering the site of the annual festival.

 

September 7, 2014 - Lukewarm wildfire season throws damper on climate-change predictions

2014 numbers below average

DENVER — This year’s below-average wildfire season comes as welcome news for Westerners, but it’s also burning a hole in the environmentalist narrative on climate change.

Although summer isn’t over, and fires are burning in California and Oregon, it has been a mild year in terms of the number of wildfires and acres burned, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.

The agency reports that 2.77 million acres have burned this year as of Sept. 5, a decline from the 3.9 million acres that had burned by the same date in 2013 and less than half the 10-year average of 6.2 million acres. The number of fires, 38,451, is also down considerably from the 10-year average of 56,278.

That reduction is even more impressive given that the Pacific Northwest was hit with an above-average wildfire season. In July Washington suffered the most destructive fire in its history, the Carlton Complex Fire, which burned 252,000 acres and destroyed 300 homes in the state’s north-central region.

So far the 2014 wildfire season is on pace to be the second-least destructive in the last decade, which could put a damper on the campaign to connect elevated carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere to an increase in extreme weather events, including wildfires.

That effort is being led by the White House. President Obama’s science adviser, John Holdren, says in a video released Aug. 5 on the White House website that climate change “has been making the fire season in the United States longer and, on average, more intense.”

“The National Climate Assessment released in May tells us, consistent with earlier studies, that longer, drier summers are expected to continue to increase the frequency and the intensity of large wildfires in the United States,” Mr. Holdren says in the video. “In the Western United States, the average annual area burned by large wildfires has increased severalfold in recent decades. The evidence is strong that climate change is responsible, at least in part, for this increase.”

Paul Knappenberger, assistant director of the Center for the Study of Science at the free market Cato Institute, argued that this year’s wildfire season comes as further evidence that Mr. Holdren and others have drastically overstated the impact of carbon dioxide emissions on weather conditions.

When these guys are making these predictions — ‘Wildfires are going to get worse’ — and then you have a wildfire season which is way below normal, it’s ripe for coming back to them and saying, ‘See? Why are you making these crazy predictions? It’s not going to happen like that all the time,’” said Mr. Knappenberger.

 

Jamie Henn, spokesman for 350.org, an advocacy group “building a global climate movement,” declined to comment on this year’s wildfire season but offered resources on the connection between wildfires and global warming, including a fact sheet from Climate Nexus.

“These wildfires are yet another indication that climate change has arrived, and the fire threat is only projected to get worse in the future. Unless we cut carbon pollution, extreme weather events like this will become more frequent in the future,” says the fact sheet.

Coleen Decker, NIFC assistant program manager for predictive services in Boise, attributed this year’s below-average wildfire activity to a combination of factors, starting with the virtual absence of wildfires in the Southeast as a result of cool temperatures and high moisture during the January-to-April fire season.

Wildfires were also down in the Southwest. “We never saw any extended period of warming or drying,” Ms. Decker said. “They’d get a little warm, then they’d get a burst of rain.”

She also said there are too many variables involved in wildfire seasons to offer conclusions on how climate change may be contributing.

“The factors are weather, terrain and fuel, and it’s hard to filter out the noise and decide what’s been attributed to each factor,” said Ms. Decker.

That Washington, Oregon and Northern California have been hard hit by wildfires this year suggests that other factors are playing a bigger role than hotter temperatures — because it’s actually getting cooler in the Pacific Northwest, said Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

Temperatures in the region peaked around 2007 and fell until 2013, when they ticked up slightly, according to figures from the National Climatic Data Center.

“The problem with wildfires is not climate change. For example, the number of big catastrophic fires has gone up in the Northwest, and yet the Northwest is in a cooling cycle,” said Mr. Ebell. “The problem with the Western forests is there’s just far too much fuel that’s been built up. Under pressure from the environmental movement, we have stopped logging in our national forests.”

The 1990 decision to list as threatened the Northern spotted owl has resulted in a huge reduction in the amount of timber being cut in the Pacific Northwest national forests. Timber production has dropped from 12 billion board feet to 2 billion since the early 1990s, according to the Forest Service.

“You can’t add 17 billion board feet of fiber every year and only cut 2 billion and not end up with these catastrophic fires,” said Mr. Ebell.

Analysts like Mr. Ebell and Mr. Knappenberger have been accused of being climate change “deniers,” but they say the only thing they’re denying are the environmental movement’s predictions of certain global warming catastrophe.

“What I’m denying is not the fact that fossil fuel emissions have some impact on the climate,” said Mr. Knappenberger. “What I’m denying is that the impact is detectable or going to be as bad as some people say it’s going to be. What I’m denying is the global warming alarmism.”

 

September 9, 2014 - All Great Lakes water level is at or above normal for first time in 14 years

Remember this alarmist whining from Joe Romm’s Climate Progress last year?

“How Climate Change Is Damaging The Great Lakes, With Implications For The Environment And The Economy

Great Lakes Michigan and Huron set a new record low water level for the month of December, and in the coming weeks they could experience their lowest water levels ever. It’s becoming certain that, like the rest of the country, the Great Lakes are feeling the effects of climate change.

Last year was officially the warmest year on record for the lower-48 states. The hot summer air has been causing the surface water of the Great Lakes to increase in temperature. One might think this causes more precipitation around the lakes, but the warmer winter air is causing a shorter duration of ice cover. In fact, the amount of ice covering the lakes has declined about 71 percent over the past 40 years. Last year, only 5 percent of the lakes froze over –- compared to 1979 when ice coverage was as much as 94 percent.”

What a difference a year makes.

Current data from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers shows that for the first time in 14 years, all five Great Lakes are at or above average water levels. Lake Michigan/Huron is up 18″ in the last year.

From a July 07, 2014 Chicago Tribune article:

“In January 2013, the average water levels in Lakes Michigan and Huron dipped to 576 feet, the lowest point since modern record-keeping began in 1918.

The all-time high of 582.3 feet was set in October 1986, representing a sizable range of about 6 feet.

The lakes tend to follow yearly cycles, swelling in the spring and summer and shrinking in the fall and winter, but they have never in 95 years of recordings remained below average for so long.

The last two years of relatively heavy winter and spring precipitation, however, have led to this year’s stronger-than-usual seasonal rise, according to Keith Kompoltowicz, chief of watershed hydrology for the Army Corps of Engineers Detroit District.

“We saw a tremendous amount of snow,” Kompoltowicz said of this winter. “We haven’t seen snow like that in a long time.”

In fact, the snowpack around the Michigan basin this year was 30 percent higher than at any time in the past decade. The past two months have also supplied above-average amounts of rain, quenching parched harbors and popular fishing holes like the Lincoln Park Lagoon.

So much for climate change effects, water is back to normal levels for now.

 

September 12, 2014 - Rapid City sees earliest snowfall since 1888

An early September winter storm in the Black Hills has dumped up to 8 inches of snow in the area, while Rapid City received its earliest snowfall in more than 120 years.

Jon Chamberlain, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Rapid City, said almost 1 inch of snow had fallen in downtown Rapid City by 8:30 a.m. while 2 inches was measured in higher elevations in town.

The snowfall in downtown Rapid City is the earliest in the city since 1888, the NWS said. The previous early snowfall mark was seven-tenths of an inch on Sept. 13, 1970.

Chamberlain said while it is unusual for Rapid City to see snowfall this early, it isn't for the Black Hills. 

"It's a little on the high side, though," he said.

The words "mystery", "baffled" and "puzzled" are memes, used, among numerous similar variants, whenever anyone in the wholly-controlled-and-coopted Political, Academic, Scientific and Media establishments wants to lie about, well, basically anything. One of those variants is "astounded".

That's why one of the headlines below reads "NYPD commissioner calls May drop in major crimes ‘astounding."

If you've been following this thread for any length of time, you know about year upon year upon year drops in crime, around the globe. As, of course, does the Illuminist-shill talking head quoted in the article, who studies this stuff for a living.

Only he has to use a code word, and pretend to be "astounded." He's shocked, shocked, he tells you. Using an exaggerated, puffed-cheeks silent film facial expression.

Don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out, guys....

 

 

 

April 3, 2017 - New York City crime drops to record levels in first quarter of 2017, despite jump in subway incidents

Despite a jump in subway crime, the city recorded its safest first quarter in at least a generation, with record lows in serious crime including murders and shootings, police said Monday.

Through the first three months of the year, the crime rate is down 5% compared to the same time frame last year.

Murders were down 10%, with 61 slayings this year compared to 68 last year, police said.

And there were 42 fewer shootings this year, a drop of 22%.

There was also a sharp drop in homicides at housing projects — five this year compared to 13 last year, a 62% decrease, police said.

But crime in the subways is up 6%, mostly due to a double-digit surge in felony assaults.

 

June 2, 2017 - May Sees Chicago Shootings FallBut 2017 Still More Violent Than Usual

DOWNTOWN — This May saw a drop in shootings — and the number of victims they claim — in Chicago.

The number of shootings throughout the month dropped about 19 percent from what Chicago saw last year, and murders were down 15 percent, according to DNAinfo data.

But violence in the city has remained higher throughout 2017 than it was in years past, and there have been just as many people killed in shootings this year as in 2016.

There were 252 shootings in May 2017, a fall from the 311 shootings the city saw the same time last year. There were fewer victims, too: This May saw 314 people shot, 52 fatally; last year, there were 388 victims and 60 of them died.

(A 25% drop in shootings - they carefully call it, generally, a 'fall', and don't state the percentage. They also mention last year, and mix it with this year, to cloud things further - ed)  

Murders overall are down from 66 in May 2016 to 56 last month.

(A 15% drop in murders, with the percentage again carefully and consistently unmentioned -ed)

 

June 5, 2017 - NYPD commissioner calls May drop in major crimes ‘astounding’

Crime continued to plummet in the city in May, according to figures released by the NYPD on Monday.

There were 7,998 so-called index, or major, crimes reported in the month compared to 8,649 in May 2016, cops said. That’s a drop of 661 crimes or 7.6 percent, the department said.

There were 24 murders reported last month compared to 32 in the same month last year. Homicides for the year were down 17 percent so far over the same period last year, from 132 to 109, officials said.

There were also 67 shooting incidents last month compared to 86 last year, for a 22.1 percent decrease.

“This month’s record-breaking crime reduction in shootings and significant decrease in homicides over last May is nothing short of astounding,” Police Commissioner James O’Neill told reporters at the Central Park Precinct stationhouse.

"And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed – if all records told the same tale – then the lie passed into history and became truth. "Who controls the past," ran the Party slogan, "controls the future: who controls the present controls the past." And yet the past, though of its nature alterable, never had been altered. Whatever was true now was true from everlasting to everlasting. It was quite simple. All that was needed was an unending series of victories over your own memory. 'Reality control,' they called it: in Newspeak, 'doublethink'."

January 3, 2017 - The Polar Vortex is Back and Warmer Arctic Air May Be to Blame

 

 

How about that quote up top? One thing you can say for them, they're no quit in these guys. But that's because they have nowhere left to go from a propaganda perspective, and are going to have to run with this lame and outdated shit until their upcoming downfall.

Edward, thanks for the compliment, and, yes, it does! I was laid off in February, and the psy corps is doing their best to keep me unemployed, getting in the heads of the people I'm interviewing with. Hard as that concept is for many or most people to assimilate at this moment in history.

It's been a very cold Spring, here it Pittsburgh, during what is purported to be the hottest year in the history of planet Earth. Don't bother telling that to anyone addicted to NPR, because they will immediately say "yeah, but that's HERE", regardless of where you are.

But this threads is, partially, anyway, for the record. Anyone can use keywords to search for things, and, despite the ceaseless effort of literally thousands to keep the false stuff positioned as high as possible in the search engines. 

Try to find this thread by searching for it with a search engine, go from general to specific, and you'll see what I mean. Or simply search "Orgonite" - watch what gets positioned up top in the search results, and where this forum lands, if it turns up on the first few pages, at all.

I've been putting together "Master" compilation posts, and that, I can assure you, is time-consuming. But I think that it becomes easier and easier to see the patterns of falsehood and obfuscation when it's presented down over literally years, like that. And there's a "temperature" Master thread already going, which the data below will be added to, later. 

I'm also painting the trim and restoring some doors and windows in our apartment, which is, wait for it, time consuming. So here you go:

It’s June, 2017, and the great artificial drought has been broken by the slow, steady, widespread and ever-increasing distribution of simple, inexpensive Orgonite devices in the vicinity of the weather warfare infrastructure that many still mistakenly presume only carries cell phone traffic and weather radar data.

I’ve included a couple of recent news stories below to support that assertion, which are part of what’s about to be a four-year record of the situation within the larger body of this thread.

It’s also a record of wholly-controlled-and-coopted Media organs working in lockstep around the globe to try to blunt, obfuscate, deny and defray the great news, which is another reason the thread is important. It’s easy to toss off one example, or two, but denying multiple years’ worth of examples becomes more and more difficult, and it’s my hope that this record might help lift the fog of programming from at least some meaningful subset of humanity.

The headline of the first story reads “Soggy Seattle lives up to name, breaks another rain record”. It’s phrased that way to make you think it’s regular, par for the course – versus the most rain since they’ve been keeping records in 1895.

The second story is headlined "These are the 25 towns that got the most rain in N.J. in May", which is a carefully-worded way to dodge saying the word "record".

In this paragraph from that story, you can see how they hedge on the front end:

Although some areas of North Jersey ended up getting average rainfall totals for the month, sections of central and southern New Jersey were saturated with more than two times the amount of rain they normally receive in May, said New Jersey State Climatologist David Robinson, who teaches at Rutgers University and oversees the New Jersey Weather & Climate Network."

Plentiful rainfall is one of the things that’s driving the record harvests we’re seeing across the globe, but the negative spin connected to rain is formulaic, and relentless: “Soggy Seattle”; “dreary weather” in New Jersey. This is Mike McFarland, a meteorologist in Seattle. "This has been a terrible winter. It was just wet.”

"Atlantic City International Airport was also soggy last month, collecting 7.52 inches of rain and setting a new precipitation record for May, according to the National Weather Service. The previous record was 6.71 inches, set in 1978, followed by 6.68 inches in 2016 and 1998."

See, A.C. was soggy last month, too - what a great word! We should use it in EVERY story! Actually, I printed that paragraph to analyze the percentages of the new records over the old, which you'll notice they took care not to print, as doing so would have been more impactful, so they hedged by omitting them. And I had to do the math. The 1998/2016 record broke the 1978 record by .44%, which is not unsurprising, in that such records are usually broken by tiny margins. But, wait, what's this? The latest record broke the existing one by 12%. Double digits, baby. See-the-needle-moving.

They desperately put this paragraph right after, to hedge, with "3.15 inches above normal but three inches below the record" being the most negative balancing statistic they could muster: "The weather service's climate station at Newark Liberty International Airport measured a total of 7.24 inches of rain in May, which is 3.15 inches above normal but 3 inches below the airport's record of 10.22 inches, set in May 1984." That's called "chaff", by the way.

This line is from just after: "sections of central and southern New Jersey were saturated with more than two times the amount of rain..." You see, it was just sections.  It's all chalked up to a local "pesky weather pattern" that they don't tell you anything further about, and no mention is made of record rainfall occurring elsewhere all around the globe. Those are back-to-back examples of what is called in the propaganda trade "compartmentalization."

It's tireless. I wish I could say it was masterful, but it's moreso puerile, which means "childishly silly and trivial." It's also unimaginative, and highly repetitive. But, be of good cheer, in that it's the best these guys have got.

Getting humanity to hate rain has taken at least a couple hundred years of dedicated programming, as, prior to the “Industrial Revolution”, many or most people farmed, and understood that drought was bad, and rain was good.

The Hawaiians still understand things – rain on one’s wedding day is seen as a blessing, whereas it’s literally the worst thing that can happen to someone from the West.

But I’m less concerned about people’s attitudes than I am about the actuality of the situation, which is that it’s been raining beautifully for four years, now, and that’s just one of the great, epochal positive changes that are taking place at every level of our reality.

Revel in them:

 

April 25, 2017 – Soggy Seattle lives up to name, breaks another rain record

SEATTLE — Soggy Seattle has broken another rainfall record with nearly 4 feet of rain this winter.

The city measured 44.7 inches of rain between October and April, making it the wettest such period since records began in 1895, the National Weather Service in Seattle said.

It marks the second year in the row that the city has topped the historic rainfall record for that period.

With several days left to go this month, this year's record will likely be padded some more, said Mike McFarland, a meteorologist with the service in Seattle. "This has been a terrible winter. It was just wet. There's no way around that," he said Tuesday.

The previous record was 44.5 inches of rain for the October 2015 to April 2016 period. The normal amount of rain during that period is usually 30.9 inches.

In the Pacific Northwest, cold-weather systems move through the region with dry breaks in between but McFarland said "we're missing those breaks."

 

May 5, 2017 – These are the 25 towns that got the most rain in N.J. in May

May turned out to be a lousy month for New Jersey sun worshippers, but a great month for lush lawns and flower beds. All because of a pesky weather pattern that pushed a lot of storm clouds over the region and dumped abundant amounts of rain.

Although some areas of North Jersey ended up getting average rainfall totals for the month, sections of central and southern New Jersey were saturated with more than two times the amount of rain they normally receive in May, said New Jersey State Climatologist David Robinson, who teaches at Rutgers University and oversees the New Jersey Weather & Climate Network.

Topping the list were four towns in Ocean County and one in Monmouth County whose rain gauges each exceeded 10 inches during the month: Lacey; Berkeley; Howell; Manchester, and Stafford. Most towns in New Jersey normally get about 4 inches of rain in May.

Atlantic City International Airport was also soggy last month, collecting 7.52 inches of rain and setting a new precipitation record for May, according to the National Weather Service. The previous record was 6.71 inches, set in 1978, followed by 6.68 inches in 2016 and 1998.

The weather service's climate station at Newark Liberty International Airport measured a total of 7.24 inches of rain in May, which is 3.15 inches above normal but 3 inches below the airport's record of 10.22 inches, set in May 1984.

To get an idea of how dreary the weather was in May, some climate stations across the state, including the one in Woodbine in Cape May County, had measurable rain every day for 10 straight days, from May 22 through May 31.

It's June, 2017, and Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime. Since that statement directly refutes our State Religion, which holds that "Poor Mother Gaia is Dying, Crushed by the Virus-Like Burden of Mankind", I've appended multiple recent examples below to support it.

In the story from Michigan headlined "Madison Heights man sets state fishing record with catch of bigmouth buffalo", you'll note that they printed the weight of the old record and the new, but carefully avoided printing the percentage increase for same, given that would be more impactful, so they hedged by omitting it. And I had to do the math. It's 9% larger than the previous records. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins, and printing a close-to-10% increase over the old record would go seriously off-message re: Poor Mother Gaia dying, and all.

This thread recently featured a propaganda piece talking about the demise of fishing on the West coast of the United States. Review the data below and see if you think fishing is dying on the West coast of the United states. This is from Lake Powell: "“Fished Saturday and Sunday from 7am-3pm both days. Ended up with 80 walleyes, 11 stripers and 1 smalley. Launched out of Halls and didn't go far."

There's scads more examples like that, just in this post, and there's examples like it in this thread going back four solid years. While the programming is dense surrounding this subject, it is not impenetrable, nor is it eternal, omniscient or omnipotent. I think we're close to the end of the farce, actually.

Fishing's booming everywhere, worldwide, including Michigan, the West coast, and also Lake Erie, right near me. With this feel-good headline: "The best walleye fishing ever?"

To maintain current programming levels, affirm, with pomposity, "that's just one of the boom-bust cycles driven by Climate Change" (shake tattered voodoo doll, dance about). This supersedes previous memos which read "Global Warming."

 

February 7, 2017 – Toledo, OH - hio - The best walleye fishing ever? Why 2017 could be a banner year on Lake Erie

Toledo (13abc) This could be a banner year for walleye on Lake Erie. Walleye numbers are increasing, and that should improve fishing on what is already considered the greatest walleye fishery in the world.

“The 2016 estimate is around 33 million, nearly half of which were the large 2014 year class,” says Travis Hartman, Lake Erie Program Administrator at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Sandusky Fish Research Unit. “This year we will add the 2015 year class as 2-year olds that seems to be even larger than 2014. The combination of large fish remaining from 2003 and an influx of two large year classes of young fish will give us incredible fishing for the foreseeable future.

 

May 9, 2017 - Walleye and Big Stripers

Lake Powell Fish Report – May 9, 2017

Walleye fishing is HOT!  There were at least 4 tagged walleye caught over the weekend which is more than were caught in 2016. The walleye contest did not start until July last year making it tough to catch large numbers of walleye, but that has now changed.  

Here is a report from Jason Johnston received today: “Fished Saturday and Sunday from 7am-3pm both days. Ended up with 80 walleyes, 11 stripers and 1 smalley. Launched out of Halls and didn't go far. All fish were caught on crawler harnesses with 2-3oz bouncers in 15-45 fow. Speed was 1.2mph and orange beads with silver or gold blades produced most. “

 

May 15, 2017 – Sacramento, CA - Fishing report: Week of May 15

SACRAMENTO RIVER, Verona to Colusa

The Tisdale launch opened last week, after being closed for several weeks because of high water. Striper fishing has been very good, with fish over 40 pounds reported last week near Colusa.

NORTH COAST RIVERS

ROGUE RIVER, Gold Beach, Oregon

After being slow for a week, spring salmon fishing improved again late last week and over the weekend. Many guides reported one to two keepers a day on Saturday and Sunday. 

RUSSIAN RIVER

Flows on the Russian are slowly dropping and as of May 14, they are at 870 cfs, said Scott Heemstra of Kings Sport and Tackle in Guerneville. “Water temps continue to hover between 58 and 64 degrees and shad fishing continues to be excellent using shad darts and type III shooting heads or small chartreuse grubs with a spinning rod,” Heemstra said. “Both the smaller males and the big females are in and the catch numbers are 6-10 fish per angler per night. Smallmouth fishing is slowly picking up, but the water temps are still cool. At this time there may still be some late down running steelhead, but for the most part this fishery is over until next winter.”

WHISKEYTOWN LAKE

Kokanee salmon fishing remains pretty good with anglers trolling dodgers with spinners trailing. Best action remains under the 299 bridge and near the dam, with the kokes about 15 to 17 feet deep.

LAKE TAHOE

Brown trout are being caught in the shallows but catch rates fluctuate dramatically day to day. Mackinaw are everywhere. Shallow water efforts pay off for Macks, as do more traditional deep water efforts. The only thing slowing the bite is wind.

BODEGA BAY

Party boat trips on New Sea Angler to the Point Reyes area were very successful for high-quality rockfish and better than a lingcod per person. Stopping on the way back in to haul some crabs was a bonus. 

EMERYVILLE

Sea Wolf and C Gull II made runs outside the Bay for lingcod and rockfish. It was limits of rockfish and sometimes limits of lingcod. New Huck Finn, Sea Wolf, New Salmon Queen, Tigerfish and Wet Spot all ran some early week trips inside the Bay with halibut counts ranging from half a fish to well over a fish per rod on the halibut and some striped bass mixed in. Later in the week with different tides the bite slowed just a bit. New Huck Finn had a 36-pound halibut come over the rail on Sunday.

EUREKA

Wednesday, May 10, offered a chance for Pacific halibut off the North Coast and 3 were taken by Eureka boats while 1 was taken out of Trinidad. One of those fish was a 40 pounder. Full Throttle Sportfishing and other boats ran for Cape Mendocino for rockfish and lingcod, finding the fishing better in deeper water than inshore. A Eureka kayaker fishing out of Shelter cove caught a 12-pound salmon.

SAN FRANCISCO

Bass Tub took a late week trip inside the Bay and every passenger got to take home a keeper halibut. Lovely Martha came back to Fisherman’s Wharf with a brace of halibut and big grins on the faces of her customers, as reported by Capt. Jacky Douglas on Wacky Jacky.

May 24, 2017 – Detroit, MI - Madison Heights man sets state fishing record with catch of bigmouth buffalo

An angler from Madison Heights has set the state's first fishing record of 2017 after catching a 27-pound, 35.25-inch bigmouth buffalo. 

Roy Beasley was bow-fishing the morning of May 13 on the River Raisin in Monroe County when he caught the behemoth, according to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. 

State records are recognized by weight. To qualify for a record, fish must exceed the current listed state record weight, and a DNR fisheries biologist must make identification.

Beasley isn't new to making the record books. He held the previous bigmouth buffalo state record for a catch he made on the Detroit River in 2008. That fish weighed 24.74 pounds and measured 34.5 inches.

(9% larger than the previous record - unprinted and un-noted by the author of the article - ed).

“That was the ultimate subtlety: consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word "doublethink" involved the use of doublethink.”

George Orwell, from “1984

 

February  9, 2017 - New U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions says the recent rise in violent crime is a “dangerous, permanent trend” which threatens the country.

March 31, 2017 – “Overall, crime rates remain near historic lows. Murder rates are half of what they were in 1980. We have driven the violent crime rate down to almost half of what it was at its peak." – Attorney General Jeff Sessions

 

 

 

As you can see from the two quotes immediately above, the folks in charge are not your friends, and are lying to you about basically everything, including the violent crime rate. Sometimes.

Orwell had it pegged with perfect accuracy as hypnotism. The folks who have run things on this globe all the way back to Babylon, and before, have done so from then to now by using what they call a “strategy of tension.” If they lied each and every time, that would never work, for very long, anyway. So it's baldfaced lie, followed by complete truth, then another lie, in a juke move that literally fakes you out of your shoes.

You can’t believe the brazenness of it. Shifting metaphors, you are hypnotized, dumbfounded, as they win another hand, and another, and you leave the casino broke at your death, not knowing what happened to you. And they’ve been smiling and wearing natty suits and working in teams, winking at one another and doing exactly the same thing for centuries, nay, Millenia.

In terms of their unconsciousness, I think he may be correct there, too, as with this crowd, it’s human sacrifice and cannibalism Saturday night, and church on Sunday.

They’re born into it, it’s a bloodline thing. They put on the natty suit selected for them, read the teleprompters, do what they’re told. Go back into this thread and see my “celebrity black eye” post and see what happens if any of them step out of line, for an instant. That includes “choked on a pretzel” President George Dubyah Bush. Or Christy Brinkley, whose black eye came when she “fell trying to save a bird.”

September 22, 2015 – Further fall in the number of crimes recorded in Scotland

In the year to the end of March 2015 there was a fall of 5% in the number of crimes recorded by Police Scotland.

The total of 256,350 recorded crimes is the lowest since 1974 but sexual crimes were up by 11%, to their highest level since 1971.

September 19, 2016 - Donald Trump Was Wrong: Crime Remained At Near-Historic Lows In 2016

Warnings of a coming crime wave may be provocative, but they are not supported by the evidence.

President-elect Donald Trump likes to claim that crime is “out of control". As with most of what Trump says, the evidence isn’t really there.

A year-end analysis  released Tuesday by New York University’s Brennan Center for Justice found that 2016’s crime rates have actually been near an all-time low. The final figures are expected to closely resemble last year’s numbers, with an overall increase of just 0.3 percent.

January 13, 2017 - New York - Crime in Nassau County Drops to Historic Lows

 

January 31, 2017 - Wilmington police announced Tuesday that crime rates in the Port City are at their lowest levels in nearly a quarter century.

 

February 9, 2017 - New U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions says the recent rise in violent crime is a “dangerous, permanent trend” which threatens the country.

 

March 31, 2017 - United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions spoke to law enforcement leaders in St. Louis on Friday and, remarkably, set the record straight on one of President Donald Trump's most glaring lies.

"We should remember some context," Sessions said. "In the past four decades, our nation has won great victories against crime. Overall, crime rates remain near historic lows. Murder rates are half of what they were in 1980. We have driven the violent crime rate down to almost half of what it was at its peak."

This "context" seems to have escaped Trump, who continues to push the lie that crime is the worst it's been in decades. The president dedicated much of his speech at the Republican National Convention and his inaugural address in January to painting the U.S. as a blood-soaked hellhole where criminals run rampant, and still peddles demonstrably false statistics about how matters have only gotten worse.

"The murder rate in our country is the highest it's been in 47 years, right?" Trump told a roundtable of county sheriffs in February. "Did you know that? Forty-seven years."

"He was not studying medicine. He had himself, in reply to a question, confirmed Stamford's opinion on that point. Neither did he appear to have pursued any course of reading which might fit him for a degree in science or any other recognized portal which would give him an entrance into the learned world. Yet his zeal for certain studies was remarkable, and within eccentric limits his knowledge was so extraordinarily ample and minute that his observations have fairly astounded me. Surely no man would work so hard or attain such precise information unless he had some definite end in view. Desultory readers are seldom remarkable for  the exactness of their learning.

This may need to be the introduction to my book, later:

 

"What ineffable twaddle!" I cried, slapping the magazine down not he table; "I never read such rubbish in my life."

"What is it?" asked Sherlock Holmes.

"Why, this article," I said, pointing at it with my egg-spoon as I sat down to my breakfast. "I see that you have read it since you have marked it. I don't deny that it is smartly written. It irritates me though. It is evidently the theory of some armchair lounger who evolves all these neat little paradoxes in the seclusion of his own study. It is not practical. I should like to see him clapped down in a third-class carriage on the Underground, and asked to give the trades of all his fellow travelers. I would lay a thousand to one against him."

"You would lose your money," Holmes remarked calmly. "As for the article, I wrote it myself."

"You!"

"Yes; I have a turn for both observation and for deduction. The theories which I have expressed there, and which appear to you to be so chimerical, are really extremely practical - so practical that I depend upon them for my bread and cheese."

"And how?" I asked involuntarily.

"Well, I have a trade of my own. I suppose I am the only one in the world. I'm a consulting detective, if you can understand what that is. Here in London we have lots of Government detectives and lots of private ones. When these fellows are at fault, they come to me, and I manage to put them on the right scent. They lay all the evidence before me, and I am generally able, by the help of my knowledge of the history of crime, to set them straight. There is a strong family resemblance about misdeeds, and if you have all the details of a thousand at your finger ends, it is odd if you can't unravel the thousand and first."

A significant sub-trend revealed by this thread is record-setting animals whose size is a significant percentage larger than the old record. Records such as these are usually broken by tiny margins.

And the serial obfuscation of the fact I just laid down by a wholly-controlled-and-coopted Media around the globe is another significant trend, where the articles won’t tell you the size of the old record. Here, in the first article, you are given that the new record is, non-specifically, “more than a full pound heavier.” And of course no percentage is provided of the new record over the old.

In the second story, below, from just last month, they don’t tell you what the old record was, at all.

As I create more and more searchable master documents, ruses such as these will become more and more apparent, more and more irrefutable.

There will be a “record animal” post, which can be distilled down to a “record fish” post, which can be distilled down to “record fish with omitted percentages” post.

One or two examples, as below, not enough to shake loose the programming for the NPR-addicted. But dozens? Perhaps a different story. It's like the "mystery", "baffled", "puzzled" compilations.

The duplicitous author of the Lake Simcoe article hedges further by saying, again non-specifically, “nearly 18 pounds.” I’m going to go with 17 pounds, 12 ounces, and 19 pounds. That would be seven percent larger than the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins.

Quite a thing, when Poor Mother Gaia is purported to be dying, crushed by the virus-like burden of mankind, don't you think?

 

 

 

 

January 31, 2017 - Ontario, Canada - Record challenged by fish caught in Lake Simcoe

A doctor's appointment kept Sebastien Roy from work last Wednesday. He had the full day off, so he might as well go fishing, he thought.

He and a buddy took the waters in the northern part of Lake Simcoe, near Orillia. It's a body of water he's well familiar with. Roy has fished Lake Simcoe a lot over the years, even acting as a guide on the water earlier in life.

It's one of the reasons he moved to Orillia in the past year: not only is the city cheaper than Barrie, but it's also closer to the fishing.

The first place they tried wasn't going to work - what had been frozen a few days earlier was now thawed. So they went to another spot Roy had wanted to try.

"Things lined up," Roy recalled in an interview Tuesday. "Right away, I caught a really small burbot. I hooked into the big one right after. The minute I looked down, I just knew."

Burbot aren't usually targeted by Roy when he's on the water; he's usually looking for lake trout and white fish. But he had been reading about record sizes a couple of weeks before, because more people were catching burbots in the lake.

The fish weighed nearly 18 pounds, was almost a metre long and just less than 50 cm around, more than a full pound heavier than a burbot caught in 2016 and expected to be officially named the Ontario record holder later this winter.

 

WASHINGTON — A Hagerstown, Maryland woman now holds the state fishing record for muskellunge (muskie).

The 32.5-pound fish was 49 inches long and had a 24-inch girth.

“There’s no other fish that fights like a muskie,” said 26-year-old Tessa Cosens of her catch. “They’re escape artists. They can spit the hooks better than any other fish, so it’s an adrenaline rush the whole time you have it until you land it.”

It took her 15 minutes to land the record-setting fish, caught on the Upper Potomac in Washington County on May 6 and certified Wednesday by Maryland Department of Natural Resources.

Cosens has been fishing with family since childhood and loves it, but she hadn’t been to the river in months.

“I’m almost three-months pregnant now, and I had some pretty serious morning sickness and haven’t been able to do much of anything,” Cosens said.

“Saturday morning, I woke up feeling great,” she said. “So we headed out about lunch time to the river.”

The fish was caught with lures and no bait, casting from the river bank.

Pulling it in close to shore was complicated by a tangle of tree limbs, brush and debris that Cosens feared could help the fish break the line and escape.

“They call it ‘The Fish of 10,000 Casts.’ It just takes a lot of skill and patience to even catch them, so that’s why we target them,” Cosens said.

“They say genius is an infinite capacity for taking pains”, he remarked with a smile. “It’s a very bad definition, but it does apply to detective work.”

 Sherlock Holmes, from “A Study in Scarlet”, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, 1891.

 

 

It’s June, 2017, and Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime. Since that statement directly refutes our State Religion, which holds that “Poor Mother Gaia is Dying, Crushed by the Virus-Like Burden of Mankind”, I’ve appended numerous recent examples below to support it.

 They’re fish records, new examples of the largest fish of their kind ever caught, in history. That’s notable enough, on a planet that is purported to be doing so poorly, but, in most of the cases, the records have been broken by significant margins, with some broken by stupendous margins. World records of any sort are usually broken by tiny margins. Many below are double-digits, and one is 47% larger, and another 65% larger.

One of the most instructive examples, and also the most damaging to the propaganda of our age, is a couple of back-to-back record Tuna caught off New Zealand. The first broke the old record by 5%, and the second by 22.6%. Those back-to-back record Tuna - biggest in history - are something, in a population that’s supposedly been reduced 96% to near-collapse by overfishing.

Among other metrics, prices of tuna both at auction in Japan and on the docks on the west coast of the U.S. have shredded that myth, but it continues to be put forward. I’m particularly looking forward to compiling my “Tuna” sub-document to further lay it waste.

This is a scientific exercise, which the reader will note is not being replicated by any establishment organization that I’m aware of. It will be easy enough to move back into history and look at records back say ten years, and twenty, and graphing how those old records compare with these new ones. And rest assured, I will do so when I have a moment.

It would be great if I weren’t working on this larger exercise entirely by myself, but it is what it is, as my friend, Joe, taught me long ago. There are schools full of people studying, specifically, fish, marine life, Marine Biology, with people who’ve dedicated a lifetime to studying the subject up in front of those classes teaching them about the subject. And NONE have seen this, spoken up, that I’m aware of.

From my perspective, that’s an instructive view into both the effectiveness of social engineering via neurolinguistic programming, as well as the machinations of a genetically-linked cabal of miscreants I refer to loosely as “Fight Club”. The Serpent Cult” is one of the broader terms I’ve seen used.

As I noted in a previous post, another data point documenting that latter organization’s largely lockstep control of the globe’s Media organs is the non-mentioning or obfuscation of the old fish records in the accounts about the new records, and certainly making no mention of the percentage increases on a systemic basis, as documenting that stunning development would go seriously off-message re: Poor Mother Gaia dying, and all.

As I create Master sub-documents from this thread, the subjects become clearer, as multiple year’s-worth of news stories about the subjects begin to paint a very detailed picture. I remember one story hilarioiusly saying something to the effect of “Global Warming is causing there to be more and bigger fish”, without any further elucidation as to the biomechanical mechanism involved. But both sides of the story are always represented, and I think it becomes easy to sort truth from fiction when they’re seen side by side.

In the meantime, revel in the great, epochal positive changes that are underway at every level of our reality:

 

 

February 12, 2014 – A 16-pound black grouper will likely earn Brielle Bennett a new IGFA female Junior record.

Bennett caught the 16-pound fish off Key West on Nov. 24, 2013 while on vacation with her family. The New Jersey native was fishing with a live grunt when the grouper took her bait and headed for the depths.

She quickly put the screws to the reel and landed the monster in double-quick time.

The fish was weighed and documented before being let loose -- none the worse for wear.

The current record is 13 pounds, 8 ounces.

(That’s 18.5% larger than the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins – ed)

 

February 20, 2014 - NZ Woman Lands Potential World-Record Pacific Bluefin Tuna

New Zealand angler Donna Pascoe landed a Pacific bluefin tuna Thursday morning that could shatter the current world record.

The Auckland native was fishing with a team aboard the charter boat Gladiator off the northern tip of New Zealand near Houhora, reports the New Zealand Herald. Pascoe used a 130-pound line to reel in the monster bluefin, which took more than four hours.

Although Pascoe caught a 537-pound blue marlin last year, that fish was nothing compared to her most recent catch. This Pacific bluefin weighed in at a whopping 906 pounds.

Pascoe's catch comes just months after fellow New Zealander Kevin Baker landed a potential record breaking Pacific bluefin in September. Baker's bluefin took 30 minutes to land and weighed 777 pounds, 1 ounce, surpassing the current record by almost 40 pounds.

But if her catch is verified by the International Game Fish Association, Pascoe's bluefin will upstage Baker's potential record by roughly 130 pounds, and outstrip the current record by about 167 pounds. The current record bluefin weighed 739 pounds, 6 ounces and was taken in February 2012, also in Houhora.Update: Potential World-Record Trout Caught Illegally

(5% and 22.6% larger than the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins - ed)

 

February 28, 2014

Rob Scott of Crane Lake, Minn. landed a 52-pound, 3-ounce monster after an hour-long fight that took place above and below the ice of Lac la Croix on Feb. 8. Following the epic battle, Scott, 65, took the behemoth to a taxidermist in Duluth to be weighed, measured and stuffed.

(article makes no mention of the previous record – ed)

 

March 4, 2014 – Kid Lands 114-Pound Louisiana State Record Catfish

Twelve-year-old angler Lawson Boyte landed a spot in the record books when he pulled a fish from the Mississippi River that was larger than him. The Oak Grove, La., resident admits that catching the 114-pound catfish took more than just skill.

(article provides no information on the prevouis record. It Was 110.9 pounds, I had to look it up, which took four seconds. That's 2.8% larger than the previous record - ed)

 

May 1, 2014 – West Virginia State-Record Blue Catfish Caught on Practice Run

Hoffman's haul weighed 52.95 pounds and measured 47.75 inches in length. The previous West Virginia state-record blue catfish weighed 44.5 pounds and measured 43.9 inches in length.

(That’s 18.98% larger than the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins – ed)

 

May 15, 2014 – 127-Pound Paddlefish Breaks SD State Record That Stood for 35 Years

What transpired was a direct refutation of the old adage "Up $%&* creek without a paddle," because Harmon ventured up that proverbial creek and sunk the hooks into a 127-pound, 9-ounce paddlefish. Harmon's fish is a new South Dakota state record, busting a previous record of 120 pounds, 12 ounces that stood for 35 years.

(That's 5.6% larger than that 35 year old record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins – ed)

 

December 22, 2015 – North Carolina Angler Catches Back-to-Back Giant State-Record Catfish

Ever catch a state record fish? How about doing it twice in two days?

North Carolina angler Zakk Royce accomplished a legendary feat while catfishing on Lake Gaston in North Carolina this past Sunday and Monday. Not only did he break the existing blue catfish record of 89 pounds by hooking a 91-pounder on Sunday, but after he got the cat certified and released it alive back into the waters, he turned around Monday and shattered his less-than-one-day-old state mark by hauling in a 105-pound blue catfish!

(That’s 2.24% and 15.38% bigger than the previous records. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins – ed)

 

May 20, 2016 – Reluctant 13-Year-Old Angler Sets New Florida Flathead Catfish Record

Charles Patchen, a 13-year-old Alabama resident, was fishing the Chattahoochee River in Jackson County, Fla. when he hooked a record-breaking 63.8-pound flathead catfish. His catch is quite the achievement considering he, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, didn’t want to go fishing in the first place.

His record supplants a 55.05-pound fish caught by James Auston Jr. in 2011 on the Yellow River.

(That’s 16% larger than the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins – ed)

 

June 9, 2016 – Angler Lands Maine's New State-Record Rainbow Trout with a Bear Hug

On June 4, Tim Kelley hooked and landed a 13 pound, 7 ounce rainbow trout, in a quarry pond on Vinalhaven island, about 15 miles from mainland Maine. It measured 32.5 inches long, and bested the previous state record by just over five pounds.

(“just over five pounds” is inexact, and hedges. Using 5 pounds, 2 ounces, that’s 65.4% larger than the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins – ed)

 

June 13, 2016 – Massachusetts Angler Catches State-Record Lake Trout

William Roy of Palmer, Mass. was trolling a small spoon for landlocked salmon on Quabbin Reservoir when he caught a 25 pound, 7 ounce lake trout. His fish replaced the previous Massachusetts record of 24 pounds even, set in 2004.

(That's 6% larger than the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins – ed)

 

June 16, 2016 – Indiana Captain Catches State-Record Lake Trout on Lake Michigan

On June 11, Tyler Kreighbaum caught a 37.55-pound lake trout from Lake Michigan, breaking the previous Indiana state record by about 8 pounds. His catch comes just weeks after Bill Roy’s 25 pound, 7 ounce Massachusetts record, caught on June 1.

(That’s 47% larger than the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins – ed)

 

June 21, 2016 – North Carolina Teen Lands State-Record Blue Catfish

Landon weighed his catch on a handheld digital scale, and though he couldn’t lift all of it off the ground, he got a reading of 106 pounds—a pound larger than Zakk Royce’s state record blue cat, caught in 2015. He and his family brought the catfish home, placed it in a kiddie pool with aerators, and tended it until finally going to bed at 3 a.m. However, when they awoke the next morning, it had expired.

(That's .95% larger than the previous record –ed)

 

June 21, 2016 – Tennessee Teen Breaks State's Rainbow Trout Record

 

On Friday, June 17, 15-year-old John Morgan of Benton, Tennessee, caught an 18-pound, 8-ounce rainbow trout from a farm pond in Polk County. It surpassed the previous state record of 16 pounds, 15 ounces set in 2002.

(That's 8.44% larger than the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins - ed)

 

February 23, 2017 - Kid Angler Catches Potential World Record Catfish

Dylan Sorrells, 10, landed a monster blue that tops 54 pounds

If luck is the intersection of opportunity and preparation, then 10-year-old Dylan Sorrells most certainly was prepared for the 54-pound, 9-ounces of blue catfish that gobbled a piece of cut shad January 29 in Lake Tawakoni.

The fish was released, but not before Dylan’s dad Chris recorded the catch details required for an International Gamefish Association Small Fry world record.

Notice, so far, no eye-popping records prior to 2013. That's not very scientific, but the analysis thus far supports my thesis. And I'll continuing adding data, you may rest assured. 

How about "no double-digit records prior to 2013"? That's more firm.

Of course, if more than one person were working on this, it would be quick and easy. But good things take time, they say.

This may be as crucial as the salmon numbers mapped against war Death energy post deep back in this thread.

You mark my words, it's the Orgonite-driven drawdown, mitigation and transformation of Death energy in the environment that's leading to these epochal fish records, both in size and raw numbers. It's what's leading to the record crop yields, the record harvests documented in this thread.

I'm proving it, scientifically, over time, over years.

In bike racing, if the peloton lets a breakaway go, sometimes they catch it, and sometimes the breakaway succeeds. 

How do you think this feels for the Fight Club team scientists reading it?

I don't care, in that I'm leading the breakaway.

 

 

September 44, 2008 – Georgia Angler Lands, Shoots Record Fish

The angler’s 30-pound, 4-ounce, 56-inch fish bested the state high mark for the species by nearly two pounds, breaking the 1995 record of 28 pounds, 6 ounces.

(That’s 6.6% larger than the previous record – ed)

 

December 13, 2011 – German Angler Lands 485-Pound Record Halibut

It was confirmed this week that a halibut caught by German angler Gunther Hansel off Bolungarvik in the West Fjords of Iceland in August is officially the largest halibut ever caught by a sea angler.

Hansel's monster measured 2.5 meters (about 8.2 feet) and weighed almost 220 kilos (about 485 pounds). The previous record holders were Bosse Carlsson and Hans-Olov Nilsson, who took their 210 kilo (around 462 pounds) halibut off the coast of Norway in 2009.

(That's 4.9% larger than the previous record - ed)

 

New Zealand Angler Lands 39.7-Pound Brown Trout

Evan Johnson of Timaru, New Zealand set a national record Monday when he landed a female brown trout weighing 39.7 pounds, according to the Timaru Herald. And although the International Game Fish Association record for a brown trout is listed at 41.5 pounds, Johnson's catch is a female, and will likely set the world record in that category.

(That’s 4.5% larger than the previous record – ed)

 

December 19, 2012 - Surf Fisherman Catches Delaware State Record Striped Bass

Delaware has a new state record striped bass: A 52-pound fish landed by Ben Smith on Dec. 8.

Smith, from Bryn Mawr, Pa., was surf fishing at the Delaware Seashore State Park. The striper measured 51 inches long (yeah, that's over 4 feet), with a girth of 30 inches. The fish was weighed on certified scale at the Old Inlet Bait & Tackle in Rehoboth Beach and then verified by DNREC's Division of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Section Sr. Cpl. Douglas Messeck.

The previous record of 51 pounds, 8 ounces, was set in 1978. While the breaking of this 34-year-old record has excited many in the fishing community, Smith remains modest about his catch.

(That’s .97% larger than the previous record – ed)

 

August 1, 2013 – IGFA Confirms World Record Brown Trout from New Zealand

Otwin Kandolf's 42-pound, 1-ounce brown trout was confirmed as the all-tackle world record by the IGFA last weekend. Kandolf landed the massive brownie in March while fishing in New Zealand's Ohau B Canal. The fish measured just over 36.6 inches long and was nearly a foot wide.

Kandolf, 71, initially thought he was snagged when he hooked the big fish. After battling it for 20 minutes, he finally brought it to the bank of the canal.

"I waited for him to come up to me. I got his head in the net and then just pushed the whole body and everything up towards the bank. I grabbed him and somehow got him up the bank," Kandolf told the Bay of Plenty Times. "We had no camera, it was dark, all the other anglers had gone and the scales we had were not big enough."

Kandolf and a buddy stored the fish in a refrigerator at a nearby pub over night until they were able to have it officially weighed. The previous record brown trout was caught by Roger Hellen in Lake Michigan in 2010. That fish weighed 41.5 pounds.

(That’s 1.33% larger than the previous record – ed)

 

August 16, 2013 – German Angler Lands Potential World-Record Atlantic Halibut

BY ALEX ROBINSON AUGUST 16, 2013

The Daily Mail is reporting that Marco Liebenow could break the world record for Atlantic halibut with this monster 513-pounder caught off the coast of Norway.

"It took 90 minutes to reel the 9-foot long fish to the surface. The fish was too big to haul onboard Liebenow's small boat so he and three friends tied a rope around its tail and towed it back to shore where it had to be hoisted on to the quayside by a crane," according to the Mail.

Lienbenow, a 31-year-old German angler, caught the fish on July 4th, according to Mortens Halibut page. The fish has been submitted to the International Game Fish Association for approval, and if accepted, it will crush the standing 419-pound record.

(That’s 22.4% larger than the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins – ed)

 

October 4, 2013 – Epic Wilderness Fishing Trip Ends With Potential World-Record Arctic Char

On the last day of the trip Sollecito, hooked into the pending record book Arctic char with a No. 4 muddler minnow. "It was a giant fish and fortunately it stayed in the pool where I was fishing," he said. "I beached it and conked it on the head with a rock," he said. Sollecito then hid it in the water to avoid attracting bears. When the men returned to camp they found that the fish weighed 17 pounds, 8 ounces. An International Game Fishing Association member, Sollecito knew he had a record fish. "We took pictures and then filleted it," Sollecito said.

Jack Vitek, a spokesman for the IGFA, agreed that Sollecito's fish most likely will be a new world record in the fly fishing category for a 12-point tippet (leader). The current record in that category is a 17 pounder caught by an Australian angler.

(That’s 5.88% larger than the previous record - ed)

 

October 24, 2013 - Englishman Lands Potential World-Record Carp

He was right. Williams hooked a pending IGFA world record 134-pound, 7-ounce armor-plated beast that gave him a solid 25-minute battle before it was subdued.

(Story makes no mention of the previous record – ed)

 

January 22, 2014 -  Spearfisherman Catches Potential Record Cobia in Brazil

The fish was weighed on two separate scales once Lobato and friends reached shore. Both scales confirmed the cobia's weight at 172 pounds.

Lobato has submitted his catch to the Underwater Spearfishing Association for record status. The current record cobia stands at 145.9 pounds.

(I just spent half an hour completing this article, then I hit 'save edited post', and got a screen I've never seen before "403, blah, blah, potentially unsafe action to this site." As a confirmation that my work was just hacked, I'm going to redo it, because it's a signpost of how important this subject is. One of my findings, in particular, is pretty stunning scientifically, to me, anyway. I'm going to go immediately back to that finding, complete it, and repost. I'll note the finding below after I amend it.

I went back into my list of articles, and found that the one with the big finding had disappeared. So I went and found it again, and am going to feature it in it's own post, prior to finishing my editing of this article.)

 

 

 

It's June, 2017, and Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime. Since that statement directly refutes our State Religion, which holds that "Poor Mother Gaia is Dying, Crushed by the Virus-Like Burden of Mankind", I've appended numerous examples below to support it.

And if any establishment organ or institution talks about that great, epochal positive change, they'll usually put forward a plausible-deniability excuse, and try to keep the focus as narrow as possible - trying to avoid any awareness of the larger picture, the fact that these changes are underway around the entirety of the globe.

I mentioned one of the more humorous excuses in a recent post, and I found it, and posted it again below. It reads:

"Why have there been so many records broken recently? Some experts believe it’s because of the warmer temperatures the past two or three years. The warmer weather makes the fish more active and eat more. Therefore, growing bigger."

Imagine, paying sixty grand for a Liberal Arts education and hearing that coming at you from the podium in your Marine Sciences class.

Here's another great one:

"This past year, 1,542 anglers representing 15 states and Canada submitted catches that were recognized as Master Angler fish. That's more than a 50 percent increase over the 987 fish recognized in 2014 - the DNR believes the increase comes from the department's simplification of the Master Angler application."

I'm frankly surprised "increasing awareness of fish size" hasn't been put forward, although "it's because more people are fishing" certainly has been.

The depth of the programming crippling humanity is massive, and that's what allows excuses as threadbare as these to succeed, at all. It's because the subconscious minds of the programmed crave an escape, will do anything to go to a place where they don't have to react, to deal, to take action.

But we must remember, propaganda has a lifespan. Which is why the Most Important Movie Ever Made, "An Inconvenient Truth", is never shown on T.V., nor in schools. If you watch old propaganda films - from the WWII era, say - they appear slanted, and obvious, whomever's films you are watching. 

The folks who are for this moment still in charge of things on this globe went all-in with "Us vs. Nature", because all the other divide-and-conquer ruses weren't working, anymore. And they hoped that they could blame their clandestine, Death-energy-based debasement of the planet on you, and me, and our cars, and cow farts - anything but the vast, internetworked system of towers, weather balls, dishes, panels, repeater arrays and the like which comprise it. They hoped the rubes would view it simply as communications infrastructure, and, for the most part, many or most still do.

However only a tiny proportion of the populace had to get wise and begin distributing simple, inexpensive Orgonite devices in the vicinity of the engines and nodes of the system, and its ability to work woe began to collapse, first with a trickle, then with a rush. We're four years in, now, to the great positive changes exemplified when the Death energy level in the larger environment was drawn back down  - when the life energy level pumped back up, to where it used to be, and perhaps past it. Remember, we're seeing more salmon than ever, in history. And that's just one of many, many data points.

As that Life energy, Chi, Prana - call it what you will - increases in the environment, awareness is rising, clarity is returning. Once the larger body of the populace gets wise, they're going to dismantle the network, live a different way, just like we've given up enslaving people and buying them at an auction to help with our farm work. Just like we don't smoke a pack of cigarettes and drink three Martini's at lunch, anymore. That latter example was not so long ago!

In the meantime, revel in the great transformation:

 

 

 

March 2, 2016 - This past year, 1,542 anglers representing 15 states and Canada submitted catches that were recognized as Master Angler fish. That's more than a 50 percent increase over the 987 fish recognized in 2014 - the DNR believes the increase comes from the department's simplification of the Master Angler application.

 

May 22, 2016 – 10 Giant Record Fish Already Caught in 2016

2016 is shaping up to be a great year of fishing across the nation. Records have been getting broken left and right. Here’s a complied list of some new records that you might have missed in the amid of records being broken.

Pennsylvania Yellow Perch Record

Brian Clark caught this monster perch in Erie’s Presque Isle this May and was named by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission as the new state record the species. The catch measured 15 15/16 inches and weighed in at 2 pounds 14 ounces. It beat the previous record by 3 ounces.

(that's 6.9% larger than the previous record - ed)

Florida Catfish Record

13 year old, Charles Patchen set a new state record on May 15 with a giant 63.8-pound flathead catfish on Chattahoochee River in Jackson County. The previous record flathead catfish weighed in at 55.05 pounds and was set five years ago on the Yellow River.

(That's 15.9% larger than the previous record - such records are usually broken by tiny margins - ed)

Montana Smallmouth Bass Record

Jacob Fowler recently landed the new Montana smallmouth bass record with a 21-inch, 7.4-pound smallie. This giant small mouth beat the old record of 6.7 pounds and will likely be the record for a quite some time.

(That's 10.44% larger than the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins - ed)

South Dakota Smallmouth Bass Record.

Lyal Held of Minnesota caught the new South Dakota smallmouth record and caught the whole thing on footage. Held beat the three year old record  by 3 ounces. The 7.3 pound smallmouth bass was caught in the first hour.

However, Held spent a lot of time of scouting the area and trying to locate the state record caliber fish. The record was set on April 23rd.

(That's 2.67% larger than the previous record - ed)

West Virginia Blue Catfish Record

Mike  Blavelt of New Lebanon, Ohio has landed the new West Virginia blue catfish record. The giant cat was caught in the Ohio River during a fishing tournament. The blue catfish weighed in at nearly 60 pounds and was under 45 inches long.

(Article uses the inexact "nearly 60 pounds" and makes no mention of the previous record. I researched it, it's 59.88 pounds. The first reference I found by searching is purposefully vague: "The old state record of nearly 53 pounds for a blue catfish was set in 2014." The other story I located had the same phrasing. Using 53 pounds 14 ounces as an estimate, that's 11.1% larger than the previous record - ed)

Freshwater Record Drum Caught in Missouri

Joshua Cole of Reeds Spring, Missiuiru caught the record freshwater drum The old state record of nearly 53 pounds for a blue catfish was set in 2014 this spring bowfishing. It took two shoots to land securely land the giant fish.

The record fish weighed in at 30.15 pounds and measured to be 33 inches long. The Fish beat the old record by almost 4 pounds.

(The old record is mentioned, but is purposefully vague: "by almost 4 pounds." Here's the actual: "he new freshwater drum broke the previous alternative-method state record of 26-pounds, 8-ounces taken on the Lake of the Ozarks in 2008." That's 18.8% larger than the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins - ed)

Hybrid Tiger Trout

Cooper Shaw has broke the Nebraska state record for tiger trout this March. It weighed in at 1 pound, 3 ounces and was 15 1/8 inches long. The youngster caught the fish on a Daredevle spoon.

(The old record is not mentioned. Couldn't locate it  - ed)

North Carolina Blue Catfish Record

Zakk Royce broke the North Carolina blue catfish record twice in 24 hours with a 91 pound and 105 pound blue catfish. Both of these fish broke the former 89-pound North Carolina record.

(I covered these previously. 2.24% and 15.38% above the old records. In that latter case, I'd note that such records are usually broken by tiny margins - ed)

Missouri Buffalo Fish Record

Travis Cardona brought in a 74-pound black buffalo record fish on March 13th, set a knew record that was broken just three days before. Missouri has had 11 new records set this spring, because they have implemented a new type of method with each record.

(No mention is made of the previous record. Here it is: "That beat the record of 59.8 pounds set just three days earlier." That's 23.7% larger than the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins. This stunningly-larger record is of particular interest when juxtaposed against the "implemented a new type of method" excuse just preceding it - ed)

Georgia Walleye Record Fish

West Carlton broke the the Georgia walleye record by almost 3 pounds this February . The 14.2-pound walleye beat the former record set in 1995 by Neal Watson. The record walleye bit 4 times before he was able to set the hook on the record fish.

(No mention is made of the previous record. Here it is: "The new state-record walleye topped an 11-lb., 6-oz. Lake Russell walleye caught in 1995 by Neal Watson. The previous lake record from Rabun weighed 9-lbs., 6-ozs. and was caught in 2005." The new record is 24.2% larger than the old state record, and 50.6% larger than the old record from that lake. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins. - ed)

Why have there been so many records broken recently? Some experts believe it’s because of the warmer temperatures the past two or three years. The warmer weather makes the fish more active and eat more. Therefore, growing bigger.

How many more records will be broken this year?

 

September 17, 2016 – Michigan - Outdoors: Six fishing records broken in one month

Michigan’s waters are cooling, but the fishing is flush-your-face hot. Sturgeon are biting. Salmon are in. And the smallmouth bass record this past week was smashed by Robert Bruce Kraemer with a 9.98-pound chunker caught on a crawler in the Indian River.

Though grouse, rabbit, turkey and bear seasons are in full swing, with bowhunting on the horizon, the prodigious fishing is enough to tempt even the most die-hard hunter to emerge from the fields and dip a line in the sweet water.

James Stack, 29, of Royal Oak lives the best of both worlds. He hunts and fishes simultaneously using his spear gun. Stack wanted to bring some attention to the modern version of an ancient sport, so he casually blew through five International Underwater Spearfishing Association (IUSA) records in a month.

Now that’s Pure Michigan. “The diversity of species available to anglers and the (mostly) healthy waters make angling dreams become possible as realities. It’s more often obtainable than in any other freshwater fishery,” Stack said.

On Aug. 12, he speared a record-breaking 22.4-pound common carp in Walled Lake. On the 24th, he broke the world spearing record for bowfin in Algonac — 5.1 pounds. Sept. 1, he broke his third record in three weeks with another monster carp bagged at 23.8 pounds and 36 inches. Two weeks later, he again crushed the bowfin record with a 5.7 pounder speared in Algonac, and that same day in East China he speared a 6.3-pound sucker for the record books.

(No mention is made of any of the previous records. The Interational Underwater Spearfishing Association makes no mention of previous records in any case. -ed)

 

September 14, 2017 - A new Michigan state record for biggest smallmouth bass!

Michigan has a new state record for smallmouth bass.

Robert Bruce Kraemer of Treasure Island, Fla., on Sunday caught a 23.10-inch, 9.98-pounder on the Indian River in Cheboygan County.

(That's .86 percent larger than the previous record, from 109 years before. Which makes sense, because such records are usually broken by tiny margins. - ed)

The previous state record was set in October 2015, when Greg Gasiciel of Rhodes landed a 9.33-pound, 24.50-inch fish from Hubbard Lake in Alcona County.

(Less than a year later, we see a new record, that's 7% larger than the previous 100-plus year-old record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins. -ed)

Prior to Gasiciel’s catch, the smallmouth bass state record had stood since 1906. That fish was a 9.25-pound, 27.25-incher from Long Lake in Cheboygan County.

 

May 30, 2017 - 4 records broken so far in ‘wildest, craziest’ start to fishing season

The fish are biting and records are tumbling.

That’s the message from the Minnesota DNR, which said on Tuesday the spring fishing season was the “wildest, craziest” they’ve ever seen since. It’s mainly because of the number of people claiming they’ve snagged record catches since the opener.

“We’ve never had so many record submissions and so much interest in such a short span of time,” said Mike Kurre, state record fish program coordinator. “They’re are all impressive catches and show interest in the program is growing and that there are some huge fish out there in Minnesota.”

(Leads with the "more people are fishing" ruse - ed)

The DNR says that its fisheries management strategies of recent years has helped contribute to the sudden surge in big fish.

(That's a lie - management strategies might drive more fish, but not "larger fish than ever in history". - ed)

Here, featured in its own post, is the finding that led to me losing a half-hour of work to hacking, and the excising of the first of the two articles below from what I'd already written. So it must be of significance. I think you'll agree when you see what it's documenting:

It took over 100 years for the Michigan smallmouth bass record to be broken, and, when it was, it was broken by .86%. Which makes sense, because such records are usually broken by tiny margins. That new record stood for less than one year, when it was broken by 7%. Which is, in turn, not a tiny margin.

That's signal, from a scientific perspective, in that "twice in less than a year" and the great leap in percentage in just that most recent year show that something very significant is going on.

 

 

 

October 23, 2015 - Smallmouth Bass Record Broken in Michigan After 109 Years

For the sixth time this year, a Michigan angler has broken the state record for largest fish. This time it’s a smallmouth bass, and the previous record stood for 109 years. 

Greg Gasiciel of Rhodes, Michigan was bait-casting with a green grub when he landed a 9.33-pound, 24.50-inch smallmouth bass from Hubbard Lake in Alcona County, according to a press release by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. 

(That's .86 percent larger than the previous record, from 109 years before - ed)

“This is additional evidence that Michigan truly has world-class bass fisheries,” said DNR chief Jim Dexter said in the release. “Smallmouth bass is one of the most popular, most sought-after sportfish in North America. Even though the Michigan state record stood for more than 100 years, we’re excited to see the bar set even higher for those who set out to land this iconic fish.”

Michigan state records are set based on weight, regardless of length or girth. The previous state record for smallmouth bass was set back in 1906 with a 9.25-pound, 27.25-inch fish taken from Long Lake in Cheboygan County caught by man identified as W.F. Shoemaker. Nice catch Mr. Shoemaker. Your record stood for a long time.

"The Party said that Oceania had never been in alliance with Eurasia. He, Winston Smith, knew that Oceania had been in alliance with Eurasia as short a time as four years ago. But where did that knowledge exist? Only in his own consciousness, which in any case must soon be annihilated. And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed—if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became truth. ‘Who controls the past,’ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.’ And yet the past, though of its nature alterable, never had been altered. Whatever was true now was true from everlasting to everlasting. It was quite simple. All that was needed was an unending series of victories over your own memory. ‘Reality control’, they called it: in Newspeak, ‘doublethink’. "

George Orwell, from "1984"

 

 

 

September 3, 2014 – The long-term data show the sea surface temperatures for the Gulf of Maine shifted upwards in the late 1920s. So let’s look at the sea surface temperatures there since 1930, Figure 4. While there was a recent uptick in the sea surface temperatures for the Gulf of Maine, the linear trend of the data show the warming rate there was basically flat, at only 0.004 deg C/decade, since 1930.  Human-induced global warming appears to have eluded the surface temperatures of the Gulf of Maine.

March 3, 2017 - Main Fishermen Set Lobster Record for Seventh Straight Year

As you can see from the set of quotes immediately above, the folks in charge are not your friends, and are lying to you about basically everything, including both lobsters and temperature of the water they inhabit in the gulf of Maine.

In the June 5th and 12th issue of the New Yorker magazine, there’s a note in “The Theater” section that says “Sales of George Orwell’s dystopian novel “1984” spiked in the wake of the 2016 election. A theatrical version, created and directed by Robert Icke and Duncan Madmillan, in in previews at Broadway’s Hudson Theatre, after originating in England. The cast includes Tom Sturridge, Olivia Wilde, and Reed Birney.”

They use the meme word “spike”, which implies that sales shot up, but quickly dropped again, forming a “spike” on the graph. It’s a repellant word, it grates, makes you feel uneasy. That’s why it’s used serially in the controlled media:

January 25, 2017 - Trump Bump? George Orwell's '1984' Spiking on Amazon

January 25, 2017 - George Orwell's '1984': Publisher printing more copies after spike in sales

Remember, Trump was elected by duped rubes who had confidence in the con artist's scripted line that he was going to "drain the swamp" in Washington, that he was going to "make America great again." Right after Obama got elected, I saw a funny bumper sticker that said "How's that Hope and Change working out for you?" Obama, you remember him, the guy who got elected saying he'd shut down Gitmo? There is, indeed, a sucker born every minute.

But, eventually, people are going to figure out that each and every last natilly-suited teleprompter reader put forth before them is a con artist, part of a larger criminal organization, running a “Confidence Game” in which they use false fair-appearance to gaint the confidence of the rubes, whom they will later “fleece”, or take advantage of, in their parlance. It's fun for them, it's a game to them.

Orwell's thesis, and my own, not so fringe, as you can see here:

January 26, 2017 - Sales of "1984" have increased 9,500% amid the start of Trump's presidency - The book is in such high demand the publisher ordered a 75,000-copy reprint.

January 19, 2017 - Surveys Show Global Trust In Government At All-Time Low 

January 15, 2017 - Public trust in media at all time low, research shows 

It's all over but the crying for these guys.
